Library Shelf Location 27.RASM
Publication Date 1999
Description Nowadays there are not as many world-famous Swedes as in the days of Alfred Nobel, Charles XII and St. Bridget. The competition has also heated up in the international celebrity arena. But in science, politics, sport, music, technology and many other fields, today more Swedes than before are playing an international role and are formidable names in their particular spheres. This book presents more than eighty of Sweden's most remarkable, colorful profiles- ranging form celebrity chefs to a round-the-world solo sailor to poets, inventors, athletes and politicians. Ludvig Rasmusson, a distinguished radio commentator and journalist, wrote the texts. Well known portrait photographer Ulla Montan provided the books strong visual images.
