Let Us Be Finns by Robert Rinehart

On December 6, 2017, the people of Finland celebrated the 100th year since the founding of their country as an independent nation state. Continuing in that celebration, “Let Us Be Finns” tells the story of four writers and scholars – Johan Vilhelm Snellman, Elias Lonnrot, Johan Ludvig Runeberg, and Zachris Topelius – who, in the previous century, inspired by their work a consciousness of national identity among the Finnish people. Telling the story is Robert Rinehart who for twenty-five years was director of Northern European Area Studies Programs at the Foreign Service Institute.
