This innovative volume opens up gendered perspectives on a broad range of twentieth-century Scandinavian culture. The book consists of an introduction that theorizes gender and power, and sixteen chapters which explore aspects of gender within a spectrum of disciplines - from politics, sociology, ethnography, geography and cultural history to literature, fine art, handicraft and film. Several of the chapters cut across a number of disciplines. The chapters cover Danish, Finland-Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish material and are written by an international team of specialists. Each chapter is accompanied by bibliographical references, and an index of personal names and the titles of books, films and works of art adds to the usefulness of the book. There is no similar study available. This path breaking volume will appeal to students and academics with interests in Scandinavia, gender studies and cultural studies as well as to members of the general public.
