A Concise History of Sweden (Cambridge Concise Histories)A Concise History of Sweden (Cambridge Concise Histories) by Neil Kent.

Sweden’s history from the Stone Age to the present day. Early coverage includes Viking hegemony, the Scandinavian Union, the Reformation and Sweden’s political zenith as Europe’s greatest superpower in the seventeenth century, while later chapters explore the Swedish Enlightenment, royal absolutism, the commitment to military neutrality and Pan-Scandinavianism.


A Warrior Dynasty: The Rise and Fall of Sweden as a Military Superpower, 1611-1721A Warrior Dynasty: The Rise and Fall of Sweden as a Military Superpower, 1611-1721 by Henrik O. Lunde.

This book examines the meteoric rise of Sweden as the pre-eminent military power in Europe during the Thirty Years War during the 1600’s, and then follows its line of warrior kings into the next century until the Swedes finally meet their demise, in an overreach into the vastness of Russia.


Sweden, Enlarged Edition: The Nation's HistorySweden, Enlarged Edition: The Nation’s History by Franklin D. Scott.

Using a chronological-topical structure, Scott shows how and why Sweden progressed from times of backwardness to an age of military greatness, through two centuries of cultural development and relapse into poverty followed by a sudden outburst of productive energy and the creation of an exceptionally prosperous welfare state where the ideal is consensus rather than confrontation.
