Chapter Summary

This book provides a new synthesis of Sámi history to a broader, English-speaking audience, and gives an overall, integrated, and wide-ranging presentation of the Sámi past that also is sensitive to regional and chronological variations. It emphasizes the significance of the interactions, encounters, and negotiations that occurred internally between different Sámi interests, agencies, and lifestyles. This internal dynamic, though often in interplay with external circumstances, has contributed to the variety of socio-cultural manifestations and diverse historical trajectories with which this book is concerned. Another major objective of the book is to challenge the image of an authentic, homogenous, and static Sámi culture. The author also shows the ways in which the history of the Sámi is a significant and natural component of Nordic and European history.

Keywords: European history; Nordic history; Sámi culture; Sámi history; socio-cultural manifestations
