Summary
True to its title, Modern-Day Vikings traces many of Sweden's cultural traits back to its Viking heritage: self-sufficiency, fairness, egalitarianism and democracy. Robinowitz and Carr explore the values underlying modern Swedish culture, such as lagom (moderation), the law of Jante (personal modesty), communication styles and business practices
