Scandinavia: A Woman's Place
The Nordic countries claim they lead the world in equality between men and women.

These facts back this claim—at least in the political realm. But business is another matter. What do Scandinavian women think?

Scandinavia: Environmental Challenges
The Nordic countries have a reputation for a clean environment. Is this clean environment the result of small populations and northern climates, or of deliberate policy decisions?

Finland has the Wests longest—and the European Union's only—border with Russia and Denmark adjoins Germany. Will immigration and new market realities change the face of the region? What military preparation is needed today with the Soviet Union dissolved? What do new relationships with Russia and the Baltic countries hold for the region?

Scandinavia: Leaderships Common Touch
Denmark, Norway and Sweden are all monarchies with a venerable tradition. Finland and Iceland are parliamentary democracies. We meet King Harald of Norway, Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, King Carl XVI Gustav of Sweden, President Vigdis Finnbogadottir of Iceland, President Marti Ahtisaari of Finland, and several industrial leaders. What these royalty, elected heads of state, and heads of major corporations have in common is an ultrademocratic leadership style—the common touch.

Scandinavia: Coming to America
Nearly a million immigrants left Scandinavia for North America in the last century. Today, immigration flows the other way. Some people even commute as these cultures intermingle. The city of Rebild, Denmark, celebrates our Fourth of July. Celebrations throughout North America remember Scandinavian Independence Days. From Disneyland to Mount Rushmore, the impact those 19th century immigrants had on North America often goes unrecognized as Scandinavian contributions.
