4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Benson, Madison, and Starbuck, all located on the western Minnesota prairie, were settled primarily by Norwegians and served as urban centers - railroad hubs, destinations for trade, gathering places - for the farming communities that surround them. Lovoll delves into the small-town and rural experience of these Norwegian immigrants and their descendants, revealing that, like many Norwegian Americans, they resisted the pull of the city, instead developing ethnic enclaves while simultaneously taking active roles in the larger town community. Their larger numbers affected local businesses, politics, education, social events, and religious practices

Ethnic leadership and Midwestern politics : Scandinavian Americans and the Progressive Movement in Wisconsin, 1890-1914 by Jørn Brøndal( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If historians were once preoccupied with politics, they are no more. In the past century history has embraced the whole range of human activity. Yet historians cannot, or at least ought not, avoid politics. Aristotle was right: humans are by nature political beings and politics is naturally an essential human activity. Whatever else history must do, then, it needs always to take politics into account." "The Norwegian-American Historical Association is therefore pleased to publish Jorn Brondal's study of Scandinavian-Americans in politics. His book is noteworthy for its emphasis on the role played in American politics by cohorts of ethnic leaders. It is also an able contribution to an undeveloped field, the comparative study of Scandinavian ethnic groups in the United States. In these respects his work complements other studies, including a number published by the Association itself, that have emphasized popular involvement in Norwegian-American politics or the careers in politics of single individuals."--BOOK JACKET
