Finland by Douglas A. Phillips
  

Synopsis

Finland by Douglas A. Phillips

A difficult environment with a harsh Arctic climate has made life for the Finns extremely challenging. But they have overcome more than just their environment. Religious divisions that developed between the Catholic and Orthodox churches also divided the country during the Great Schism. Later, the country was a battleground for fighting between the historical powers of Sweden and Russia. Today, Finland is a communications titan, and the country is no longer situated on the fringes of human activity. The use of technology has helped the Finns move to a point of virtual centrality in the European community. This full-color survey of the Finnish geography, history, government, economy, people, and culture will assist student researchers in investigating this Nordic country.
