New book

Norway - Nature, Industry and Society

Grete Rusten, Kerstin Potthoff and Linda Sangolt have edited a new book about Norway.


This book about Norway's nature industry and society is written by researchers in geography, social science, economics and political science from major universities, university colleges and research institutions in our country.

The book is meant for scholars, internationally-oriented businesses, tourists and students, and offers a fresh perspective on how this small country in the far north of Europe has developed and managed to become a modern society.

The identity of the country can be seen as balancing culturally between urban and rural, and ideologically between market and social democratic values.
