Plunder, Pillage, and Democracy?
Arthur Herman has written an incredible book on the legacy of the Scandinavians, starting with the Vikings. “The Viking Heart: How the Scandinavians Conquered the World” creates a timeline from one of the most feared people to walk the earth to the earliest practitioners of democracy, to legendary heroes, to a people who in many ways saved modern humanity.
Arthur Herman is the author of the new book, “The Viking Heart: How the Scandinavians Conquered the World”. He has written numerous bestselling books, including “Gandhi Churchill: The Epic Rival That Destroyed an Empire and Forged Our Age”, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2009. He is the author of “Douglas MacArthur: American Warrior”; “1917: Lenin, Wilson and the Birth of the New World Disorder”; “Freedom’s Forge: How American Business Produced Freedom in World War II”, which the Economist named as one of its Best Books for 2012; and one of my favorite books, the New York Times bestseller “How the Scots Invented the Modern World”. He is a senior fellow and director of the Quantum Alliance Initiative at the Hudson Institute and a regular contributor to various publications, including National Review, Commentary magazine, and The Wall Street Journal.
