"The history of modern Denmark is the story of how a once extensive and diverse empire slowly fragmented under the changing circumstances of the times. In this introductory guide, Knud J. V. Jespersen traces the process of disintegration and reduction that helped to form the modern Danish State and its international position. Employing a thematic approach, Jespersen explains how the Denmark of today was shaped by wars, territorial losses, domestic upheavals, new methods of production, and changes in thought. In this thoroughly revised third edition, there is an increased focus on the wider Nordic and European contexts of Danish history. There is a wealth of new material on imperialism, immigration, class and gender, and a nuanced exploration of Denmark's scientific and cultural accomplishments. Incorporating discussion of the 2015 terror attack in Copenhagen and the impact of Brexit as seen by Denmark, this overview of Danish history is at the cutting-edge of current affairs"--Back cover
