A History With Documents



Upsala & Stockholm Almqvist & Wiksell Ltd Printed by Almqvist & Wiksell Ltd, Upsala 1905

Author's Introductory Remarks.

The following work is intended to give an insight into the Swedish Norwegian Crisis. It has been the Author's endeavour to attain this object, partly by a condensed account of the events of the last few years, partly by a collection of suitable extracts from documents referring to this crisis. Choice in the last items has been confined to the most important ones. Touching the Consular negotiations only the discussions on the most disputed points are given.

In dealing with some of the statements in Nansen's brochure the author does not intend a exhaustive criticism of the said work, but has only tried to show, by a few instances, the treatment pure and distinct facts have been submitted to, in these days, by Norwegian agitation. The number of instances could be multiplied many times over. If the following representation has caught the tone of present feeling in Sweden, it must be excused. The Author is, however, convinced that this has not disadvantageously affected his account of the actual facts of the case.

Upsala. August 1905.
