In the book Industry and Modernism, the meaning of industrial production is discussed particularly in the context of the Nordic and Baltic postwar histories. The polarities of the Cold War suppressed similarities between the two worlds such as the shared belief in the power of architecture, planning and technology to construct new societies. For many western European countries, Nordic countries represented a model of the welfare state, just as Baltic countries were seen as models within the Soviet hegemony. In the book, economic and social history is integrated with business history, architectural history, and the study of industrial heritage. Printed Pages: 401.
