From 1850 through 1930, about 1.3 million Swedes settled in the United States. By 1910, Swedes were the largest ethnic group in Minnesota, more than any other single state. Swedes left their mark in politics, religion, business, and the arts, and in this collection of 24 essays, leading scholars from the United States and Sweden write about various aspects of Swedish culture in America. Topics include urban settlement, institutional & creative life, the language of immigrant experience, and Swedes in religion & politics.
