Edited By Lahteenmaki,Maria & Snellman,Hanna
The West has always been a resource for the Finns. Scholars, artists and other professionals have sought contacts from Europe throughout the centuries. The Finnish experience in Western Europe and the New World is a story of migrant labourers, expatriates and specialists working abroad. But you don't have to be born in Finland to be a Finn. The experiences of second-generation Finnish immigrants and their descendants open up new possibilities for understanding the relationship between Finland and the West. The Finnish passage westward has not always crossed national borders. Karelian evacuees headed west, as did young people from the Finnish countryside when opportunities to make a living in agriculture and forestry diminished in the post-war era. The legacy of these migrants is still visible in the suburbs of Finnish cities today. This book is a joint effort of the Department of Ethnology and the Department of History at the University of Helsinki. It was written by Ph. D. students supervised by Academy Research Fellows Maria Lahteenmaki and Hanna Snellman, in collaboration with colleagues abroad interested in current research in ethnology and history. 247pp.N.B.Two corners slightly bumped.

Klein, Jonas
This biography chronicles the lives of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, focusing on the influence of their summer home on Campobello Island. This personal history examines the Roosevelts' heritage and traditions and explores their public trials, tragedies, and triumphs, as well as the frustrations and disappointments of their private lives. Campobello played a vital role in the formation of character for both Franklin and Eleanor, providing outlets for physical activity and emotional escape. At Campobello, Franklin was afflicted by polio, the most defining event in both their private lives and public careers. This story is peppered with anecdotes, personal letters, and reminiscences of the friends, family, and staff who played important roles in their lives. 274pp.
