This is a survey of the point in history when Sweden rose to pre-eminence in Europe. Drawing on the latest literature in Swedish and other languages, Paul Douglas Lockhart examines the institutions of the Swedish ''empire'' at the height of its influence, while focusing on the key historical questions: why did this impoverished state become a great power, how was it able to maintain this status and what brought about its eventual decline?
