Nordic Social Attitudes in a European Perspective
Edward Elgar Publishing | 2008-12-30 | ISBN: 1847209319 | 297 pages | PDF | 5 MB
This book addresses the effect that institutional settings typical to the Nordic countries have upon people's attitudes and behaviour. Placed within a European comparative perspective, the analyses presented by the contributing authors centre around issues relating to the welfare state, politics, family and work, as well as cultural concerns including economic morality and religiosity. Despite differences between the Nordic countries, the overall impression given is of a shared outlook and way of life. In the European context, the Nordic countries particularly stand out as a distinct group therefore demonstrating their institutional similarities.
