Finland: The World’s Best-kept Secret
“Richard D. Lewis brings his extensive knowledge of Finland to a wide audience, capturing the mystery and setting the context for its continued success. Finland, Cultural Lone Wolf is a book of many insights – about Finland and the world beyond.”
Matthew Kirk, British Ambassador to Finland
Finland, Cultural Lone Wolf is the story of an accomplished nation and her extraordinary people. Pusuing a “Lone Wolf” policy, Finland raised itself from a struggling, war-battered state in 1945 to one of the most developed countries in the world. The exponential rise of Nokia from tire and timbers to leading the world’s telecommunication industry is indicative of the Finns and their characteristic business style. These remarkable people speak a language unique in its origins and have kept their cultural identity intact despite the influences of powerful neighbours, Sweden and Russia.
