Details

In preparing this volume it was the author’s aim to omit as few important events as possible without making the book a mere enumeration of names and dates. Above all, he tried to be accurate. The Constitution of Norway, the most liberal Constitution of Europe, appeared to be an appropriate closing chapter in a History of Norway.
