Produktbeskrivning

Recension

"...meticulously researched. [Partanen] offers a clear, informative, fact-filled survey of the differences between American and Nordic child care, health care, education, eldercare and taxation arrangements. It could be a game-changer in national conversations about the roles that governments should play in their citizens' lives." -- Seattle Times

"An engaging fusion of reportage and memoir." -- O, the Oprah Magazine

"...Partanen is good at blending the individual stories of her friends in the cold, hard facts of national statistics... Partanen is a careful, judicious writer and she makes a careful, judicious case." -- New York Times Book Review

A Best Nonfiction Book of Summer 2016 -- Bustle

A Book You Desperately Need to Add to Your 'To-Read' Pile This Summer -- Gizmodo

"Partanen's pride in her homeland and genuine concern for the struggles of middle-class Americans infuse her book with candor and charm, and her perceptions about American struggles feel spot-on." -- Booklist

"A passionate and intelligent argument." -- Publishers Weekly

"This highly readable and entertaining work is timely, as the conversation about inequality and the role of social services in this country has never been more relevant." -- Library Journal

A Best Book of Summer 2016 -- O, the Oprah Magazine

"If Americans really understood how bad we have it-how unjust and wrongheaded our child care, education, and public health policies are-we'd take to the streets. Anu Partanen rips up the stale stereotypes about Nordic welfare states and shows us all the kinds of human flourishing we're missing out on.This is a dangerous book. Don't let it fall into the wrong hands." -- Judith Shulevitz, author of The Sabbath World

"In her careful, evenhanded series of thoughtful essays, Partanen, who just became an American citizen, parses the recipe for Nordic success that even the self-congratulatory 'exceptional' American may want to ponder and adapt. . . . An earnest, well-written work worth heeding, especially in our current toxic political climate." -- Kirkus Reviews

"This is a wonderful, hopeful book about what American society could be--not by adopting Nordic 'socialism, ' but by embracing the values that have allowed Nordic citizens to enjoy more freedom and equality than in present-day America. The American Dream was once an inspiration to the world. Anu Partanen shows us how to rediscover it." -- Robert B. Reich, Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy at University of California, Berkeley, and former U.S. Secretary of Labor

"In this election year, Partanen's sensible book should be required reading for those who wonder why so many Americans feel resentful and alienated." -- Foreign Affairs

A Must-Read, Summer 2016 -- New York Post

Från baksidan

Moving to America in 2008, Finnish journalist Anu Partanen quickly went from confident, successful professional to wary, self-doubting mess. She found that navigating the basics of everyday life was much more complicated and stressful than anything she encountered in her homeland. At first, she attributed her crippling anxiety to the difficulty of adapting to a freewheeling new culture. But as she got to know Americans better, she discovered they shared her deep apprehension. To understand why life in the United States is so different than that in Finland, Partanen began to look closely at both.

In The Nordic Theory of Everything, Partanen compares and contrasts life in the United States with life in the Nordic region, focusing on four key relationships--parents and children, men and women, employees and employers, and government and citizens. She debunks criticism that Nordic countries are socialist "nanny states," revealing instead that it is we Americans who are far more enmeshed in unhealthy dependencies than we realize. As Partanen explains, the Nordic approach allows citizens to enjoy more individual freedom and independence than the American way.

Partanen wants to open Americans' eyes to how much better things can be--to provide the opportunity to live a healthy, safe, economically secure, upwardly mobile life for everyone. Offering insights, advice, and solutions, The Nordic Theory of Everything makes a convincing argument that we can rebuild our society, rekindle our optimism, and restore true freedom to our relationships and lives.
