Swedish Images of Others, Self and Situation, 1814–85
- 54 Downloads
This chapter consists of a detailed description of the images of Swedish decision-makers. The account follows the same chronological approach as in the chapter on Swedish security policy strategies (chapter 4). Within each time period, the narrative starts with an account of images of the relevant great powers (images of others), followed by self-images and image of the situation. When describing Swedish images of Russia, Britain, France and Prussia (Germany), the general outline, although difficult to implement consistently, has been to treat the three main components of images one after one, beginning with intentions, linked to images of the general relationship in terms of friendship-enmity, then turning to images of power and ending with regime characteristics.
