    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the initial impact of the 1862 municipal voting reform. The town of Östersund is the subject of the case study and the focus is directed on issues such as voter turnout, voting patterns and political recruitment.

    What was the turnout? Inarguably, the socio-economically powerful groups made up a greater share of the electorate compared to the socio-economically disadvantaged groups; a phenomenon which has been supported in some previous research. In Östersund however, turnout was generally higher than in many other Swedish cities.  Furthermore, it can be noted that in the election in 1862 a group of workers and public servants organized a collective vote. Similar actions have not been reported in previous research. This example of early political organization is interesting since the action violated the prevailing political culture whereby the candidate would be elected based on their good character and qualifications, and not as a proponent of a particular political program or political affiliation.

    Their attempt failed. No obvious representatives of the workers and public servants were elected to the City Council; undoubtedly his had a negative consequence on these voter groups in the 1864 town council elections.

    In the elections under discussion in this article none of the candidates voted for themselves which was an expression of a political culture with its roots in the period before 1862. It was considered vulgar to vote for oneself. On the subject of political recruitment to the council Östersund did not differ from other Swedish cities. It was the city's socio-economic elite who elected their own representatives.

    Israels omvändelse som jordens fulländning: Antijudiskhet och antisemitism i Missionstidning för Israel 1874–18852014In: Makt, myter och historiebruk : Historiska problem i belysning / [ed] Stefan Dalin, Sundsvall: Mittuniversitetet , 2014, 1, p. 123-142Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this contribution is to study how Jews and Judaism is viewed among evangelical Christians in Sweden as reflected in the journal Missionstidning för Israel (Mission Magazine for Israel) 1874–1885. The journal was founded in Stockholm in 1874 within the Swedish Lutheran Church and was published by Svenska Israelsmissionen, an association for Christian missionary activity among the Jews. The way in which Jewish people were depicted stemmed from hostile Christian traditions. The Jews were said to be rejected by God because of their blindness, disobedience and rebelliousness, and furthermore they are repeatedly blamed for the crucifixion. But themes from contemporary secular anti-Semitism can also be found in the texts, for example, Jewish control over the banking system, economy and media in order to dominate the world. The Jewish people were por-trayed as hostile towards God and a threat to Christianity and Christian society. However, eventually all Jews will turn to Christ, and that will be the beginning of a new order and the perfection of mankind. This mind-set is similar to what is often called redemptive Anti-Semitism: The Jewish people are the key to human perfection.

    Abstract [en]

    The modernization of Swedish society during the late 1800s and early 1900s is closely connected to the exploitation of the country’s natural resources and forestry in particular. The aim of this article is to analyse how the process of industrializa-tion was expressed in the Swedish Parliament (Riksdag). My hypothesis is that the “Norrland Question” (Norrlandsfrågan) in the main, is an ideological project. The story of how the farmers were robbed of their woodland has its origin in a time of rapid change when an agrarian society’s financial, social and ideological foundations were challenged by the supporting structure of the emerging industri-al revolution. It was compatible with the late 19th and early 20th century National-istic Project, as well as with parts of the socialist criticism of the capitalist society. Still, the similarities between “right” and “left” in the parliamentary debates exist only on the surface. My analysis has shown that even if socialist, liberal and con-servative members of Parliament could agree regarding what ought to be done, the underlying values and concepts of reality differ on fundamental issues.

    Forests for Sale? A Study of Exploitation of Forest Estates in a Parish in Northern Swe-den, ca 1870–1906

    The modernization of Swedish society during the late 1800s and early 1900s was closely connected to the exploitation of the country´s natural resources. An im-portant factor was the sawmill industry in the northern part of the country where increased production led to a great demand for the acquisition of agricultural and forest land. The majority of these estates were owned by freeholders. Towards the end of the 1800s many of them sold their land to various sawmill companies. This process laid the basis for an ideological social debate timed around 1900, in which the freeholders were seen to be threatened and abused by exploitative forces. This culminated in 1906 in a law that forbade companies from buying agricultural properties.

    This article examines the development of the forestry market in a parish in northern Sweden during the period 1870 to 1906. The proportion of commercially-owned land during this period increased from 3 to 58 percent, especially after 1880. The study also shows that the competition for land acquisition was great. Many companies were potential buyers and this situation gradually inflated prices and made it difficult for sellers to assess the actual market value. In some cases the value of an estate rose by thousands of percent in a few decades.

    In this article the image of the freeholders as passive victims of modernization is compared to examples of individual farmers who themselves acted strategically to make a profit in the forestry market. In particular a certain form of estate that the government intended for settlers, became a commodity through which speculating farmers and companies made substantial profits - while the government´s inten-tions about lasting cultivation were lost. All in all, it appears that this whole pro-cess was much more complex than the social debate indicated.
