Editorial Reviews

Review

"Swedish Exodus is the translation (and excellently rendered it is) of Den Stora Utvandringen. Its ten chapters serve as an admirable introduction to the subject and they are supplemented by a good, if selective, bibliography. . . .

"It is a tribute to this admirable survey that one is left at the end wishing for more personal details of the fascinating adventures of these pioneers."—Times Literary Supplement

Format: Paperback
"Swedish Exodus" is an indespensible reference for Swedish researchers. In these pages one can find out why so many Swedes decided to come to America, how they mananged it, where they emigrated to in America, how many came during each year of the mass migration, how many remigrated each year, how many came from each major Swedish district, and how they did in America. It even outlines the consequences of the emigration on Sweden. It is nicely indexed, contains a useful bibliography, and is illustrated with photos and drawings.

Being of Swedish descent I always wondered why my forebears came here. Now I know. Concise. Not wordy. Good for someone that wants a good simple explanation of the Swedish Exodus.

Format: Paperback
The chapters of this book set out the points of major importance about Swedish emigration to America. This is good as a place to start reading about Scandinavian emigration studies and its solid selected bibliography is helpful for guidance to more academic works.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Ulfilas on June 4, 2011
Format: Paperback
Although the first Swedes to come to America founded their own colony bordering what later became Philadelphia and stretched into New Jersey in 1638, it was not until over two hundred years later in the 1850's that Swedish immigration to America reached a substantial level. This books tells the interesting story of how over a million Swedish immigrants, from 1851 to 1930, came to establish themselves in the United States. Included are accounts of a number of immigrant histories and how they came to settle in various parts of our country, usually in the Midwest. One learns that Sweden in those days was far from the progressive nation that we now know, but instead a heavily stratified society lacking in religious freedom outside of the state-sanctioned Lutheran church. Not only did many Swedes find the freedom and opportunity that they sought in America, their immigration had a lasting influence on Sweden itself as it moved towards becoming a more attractive country for its existing citizens--thereby dissuading them from voting with their feet and leaving the old country for America's beaconing shores.
