Finland

Olli Alho (Editor-in-chief)

– a cultural encylopedia –

“Finland is snow and ice, midnight sun and endless forest, sauna and Santa Claus. But it is much, much more. In more than 300 key words by almost 80 Finnish experts and scholars, Finland: a cultural encyclopedia tells what this country between East and West is made of. It shows what distinguishes Finland from the rest of the world and what unites it with it.
The book introduces the central names in Finnish music, scholarschip, design and architecture. It covers Finnish culture from religion to roch’n’roll, from mythology to media, from eating to education, from sisu to sex. It reveals the hidden meanings for Finns of snow, light, trees and lakes.”
