From prehistoric times to the modern age, from the earliest traces of humans found on the present-day territory of Denmark, dating back 200 000 years, to the end of the 20th century: this is an imposing and large-scale study by the eminent historian Jorg-Peter Findeisen, who has taught in some of the foremost universities of Europe. The author has traced the whole political, social and economic history of Denmark, with its peaks and crucial turning points, its successes and failures, and the personalities who made this history. What we have at last is the picture of a prosperous state, the smallest of the Scandinavian countries, which has successfully overcome the challenges of the distant and recent past and has provided its citizens with a high level of social security, parliamentary participation and the basic democratic rights and freedoms. Most Europeans do not seem to know much about Denmark, its past and well-ordered present. Prof. Findeisen skillfully and competently fills the gaps in our knowledge.
