Title: Cash and Cannons. Norway, Denmark and the US Aid Programmes 1947-1952
Author: Kjetil Skogrand
This study examines the process of the Norwegian and Danish integration into the western security system in the period from 1947 to 1952. What were the two countries’ motives for accepting the Marshall aid? And to what extent did the American aid programmes contribute to the Norwegian and Danish integration into the political and military structures of the Atlantic bloc? Kjetil Skogrand discusses these questions, as well as the analytical emphasis of Norwegian and Danish historians in dealing with their countries foreign policies in the early years of the Cold War.
