The Scandinavian countries today form a security-community for economic cooperation and the settlement of international controversy by peaceful methods rather than by war. This status was achieved not while Norway and Sweden were amalgamated in a political union from 1814 to 1905, but only after separation. In this book Dr. Lindgren analyzes some of the forces underlying the failure and dissolution of the Norway-Sweden union. Originally published in 1959. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

A complete history of the Finnish Communist Party, one of the most active and popular communist parties outside the Sino-Soviet bloc. Starting with the founding of the Finnish Social Democratic Party in the 1880's, leading to the founding of the Communist Party by dissident Social Democrats in the early 1920's, this book gives a detailed account of the activities, goals, and leadership of communism in Finland. One major aspect of this study is the contention of the author that the war in Finland following Germany's defeat in 1918 was not a revolution fought against the Russian army, but rather a civil war, with Red Finn pitted against White Finn.Originally published in 1967.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
