About the Author

KNUD J.V. JESPERSEN is Professor of Modern History at the University of Southern Denmark and Royal Historiographer to H.M. the Queen of Denmark.


The third edition of Knud J. V. Jespersen’s History of Denmark pairs an insider’s perspective on Danish history and politics with a keen assessment of how Denmark’s domestic situation has been affected by external, global developments. This book will be invaluable for English speakers trying to understand how one small country in the north Atlantic has had such an outsize influence on the world.
