📒A Nordic King ✍ Karina Halle
✏A Nordic King Book Summary : A STANDALONE ROYAL ROMANCE from the NYT bestselling author of The Pact and The Swedish Prince. When I first applied for the job I thought it would be like all the others: working as a nanny for an aristocratic family. Then I got the job and found out how wrong I was. Now I'm the new nanny for two adorable little girls who happen to be princesses. Their father is the widowed King of Denmark. And my new home? The royal palace in Copenhagen. Adjusting to my new life isn't easy but the hardest part hasn't been the girls who still grieve over the loss of their mother. It's their father. Cold, mysterious and moody, with an icy stare that seems to penetrate your soul, King Aksel may have hired me to take care of his daughters but he wants as little to do with me as possible. Yet the longer I share these palace walls with this man, the more that I'm drawn to him. His chiseled face and sexual swagger are only part of the package. It's in the long, intense glances at the dinner table, the way we'll brush up against each other in the halls, the rare glimpses of the man deep inside, like the sun passing through clouds. But no matter how I feel about him, we can never be together. You think it's bad enough being in love with your boss? Try falling in love with a king.
📒Is There A Nordic Feminism ✍ Drude von der Fehr
✏Is There A Nordic Feminism Book Summary : The Nordic countries share a special cultural and political experience. This book presents an interdisciplinary perspective, covering the following areas: women's political strategies from different historical, national and text-orientated perspectives; questions of identity, rationality and subjectivity; and the organized production of social and cultural values. It attempts to understand and present internationally some of the complex changes in culture and society that concern women and feminists in the Nordic countries today.
✏The Function of Kinship in Medieval Nordic Legislation Book Summary : In the Nordic medieval laws a new definition of kinship – a canonical one – was introduced, based on the Church’s incest prohibitions and the requirement to love your kin. It influences the rules for property transfer, inheritance, wergeld and marriage.
✏Aggressive and Violent Peasant Elites in the Nordic Countries C 1500 1700 Book Summary : This book investigates the forms that the aggression and violence of peasant elites could take in early modern Fennoscandia, and their role within society. The contributors highlight the social stratification, inner divisions, contradictions and conflicts of the peasant communities, but also pay attention to the elite as leaders of resistance against the authorities. With the formation of more centralised states, the elites’ status and room for agency diminished, but regional and temporal variations were great in this relatively drawn-out process, and there still remained several favourable contexts for their agency. Even though the peasant elite was not a homogenous entity, the chapters in this collection present us one uniting feature – the peasant elites’ tendency to assert themselves with an active and aggressive agency, even if this led to very different outcomes.
📒Nordic Literature ✍ Steven P. Sondrup
✏Nordic Literature Book Summary : Nordic Literature: A comparative history is a multi-volume comparative analysis of the literature of the Nordic region. Bringing together the literature of Finland, continental Scandinavia (Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Sápmi), and the insular region (Iceland, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands), each volume of this three-volume project adopts a new frame through which one can recognize and analyze significant clusters of literary practice. This first volume, Spatial nodes, devotes its attention to the changing literary figurations of space by Nordic writers from medieval to contemporary times. Organized around the depiction of various “scapes” and spatial practices at home and abroad, this approach to Nordic literature stretches existing notions of temporally linear, nationally centered literary history and allows questions of internal regional similarities and differences to emerge more strongly. The productive historical contingency of the “North” as a literary space becomes clear in this close analysis of its literary texts and practices.
📒Roman Reflections ✍ Klavs Randsborg
✏Roman Reflections Book Summary : Roman Reflections uses a series of detailed and deeply researched case studies to explore how Roman society connected with and influenced Northern Europe during the Iron and Viking Ages. In an original way, the book brings late prehistoric Denmark – best known for its so-called 'bog bodies' – into a world dominated by textual histories, principally that of Tacitus. The studies include a new examination of the bog-bodies of the late first millennium BC, a classical archaeological puzzle: men, women and children murdered yet respected in death and adorned with items of fine clothing. A second essay challenges traditionally held ideas about the Cimbri by exploring the textual and archaeological evidence, including the startling and famous European artefact, the Gundestrup silver cauldron. The other studies comprise an archaeologically founded modernist discussion of the ethnography of Tacitus' Germania, in particular considering the character of ancient Germanic Bronze and Iron Age societies; a linguistic exploration of the Latin inheritance in northern European names and places, much of which seems to have been invented by the Romans; and an analysis of the origins of the Danes. Throughout, traditional sources and history are presented in conjunction with new archaeological observations and interpretations. In an accessible way, Roman Reflections assesses Denmark's part on a larger stage, showing how foundations were laid for its zenith in Viking times.

📒Brynna ✍ David Burks
✏Brynna Book Summary : "A smiling Brynna watched the swirl and splash of the armada as it formed up and fled before the wind. Whitecaps and spray flew from the prows, and every ship's company laughed out loud at their speed and the freshness of the spray in their faces. Brynna tried to find her family's ship in the rush, and finally spotted it on the far side of the bay, bravely putting out to sea just behind Ivar. There go my father and brothers, she thought with a pang of longing, but also of pride. And here, at last, I go as well! Outside the natural breaker rocks of the harbor, the swells became the long troughs of the cobalt-blue North Sea, and the long ships streaked down each wave to ride up the next, letting the wind and the tide sweep them south and west. Brynna, raised by the sea and often aboard her family's ship for coastal excursions, was thrilled. England-bound! Brynna laughed aloud. Adventure at last! Her dreams were about to come true." But what would the adventure bring? Brynna's disguise had worked, and she was part of a Viking raid, something no girl had ever done. But it would turn out much different than she had ever dreamed!
