Considered one of the most intractable and complex border disputes
in modern European history, the sixty mile border between a small
kingdom and a growing, belligerent would - be world power caused
several wars in the Bismarckian era and lead to several crises in
the post World War I and post World War II eras. Professor
Berdichevsky skillfully discusses this issue stressing the
demographic, linguistic and cultural context of the 'kulturkampf""
between Germans and Danes, a war for cultural and linguistic
domination that lasted well into the 1950s(and has since been
settled within the context of the EU). Also discussed in depth is
the Frisian population and language as a third player in this
struggle for accepted borders and mutual respect. New information
on British occupation policies (post 1945) and Frisian nationalism
is included as well as new research on the role of the divided
Social Democratic Party and the ""refugee vote"" in the 1940s and
1950s. Every well illustrated with rare photographs, posters,
population and language distribution graphs.
