'The Euro crisis and the bankruptcy of Iceland have sent repercussions throughout the Nordic region, but not always of an economic kind. This exciting and diverse book discusses a broad range of crises currently affecting the region, from the double bind of the Norwegian oil economy coupled with the country's self-promotion as a champion of sustainability, to the contradictions of Swedish anti-racism and the crisis seen as a window of opportunity for Greenlanders in search of full independence. It critically interrogates neoliberalism, broadens the theoretical perspectives on the concept of crisis and deepens the ethnographic understanding of the Nordic region.'Thomas Hylland Eriksen, University of Oslo, Norway
