In History of German Speaking and Nordic Nations, Kanski describes nine countries. The first part of the book covers the frequently interwoven relationship of Germany and Austria. The book also includes chapters on Switzerland, and the Holy Roman Empire. The second part of the book describes the Nordic countries (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, and Finland).
These books are designed as companion texts and when read together will give readers a good understanding of the important personalities and their contributions to European history. Written in a reader-friendly bullet-point format accompanied by many colour images, Kanski’s latest books will act as a stepping stone for the general reader.
