dual breadwinning, then considerable remnants of male breadwinning nevertheless remain as women are concentrated away from the core jobs that men have little incentive to vacate. There is a similar pattern visible in Sweden: high rates of female participation in the labour market combined with generous childcare and parental leave policies. The price, though, is a labour market with some of the most sexually segregated divisions to be found anywhere, with TZP5 4/25/2005 4:53 PM Page 101 Productivism and beyond 101 women grouped into public sector jobs and the

the later Bronze Age to late Iron Age/Roman period, c. 1200 BC– AD 400, when we see a swell in dated interments in bogs across Ireland and Britain, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Poland and the Netherlands (Turner and Briggs 1986 : tab. 19; van der Sanden 1996 : fig. 92). It is these latter countries that will form the basis of research here. As argued above, this study is not only timely but pressing. Peatlands represent the world’s largest natural terrestrial carbon store (Page et al . 2011 ; IUCN 2019 ), with a crucial role to play in carbon sequestration as a

.10 In her review of the Moscow Design Museum’s debut exhibition, the Swedish design historian Margareta Tillberg shifted the focus of her analysis from plagiarism and imitation to the affective power of Soviet objects: Even if Soviet design was often – but far from always – based on originals borrowed from the West, the individual objects exude a personal charm, variation, and quirkiness that makes them well worth preserving, exhibiting, and discussing. Certainly, one might think the Vyatka is merely an unnecessary repetition of the original Vespa, only heavier, of

The student also learns that in this respect Germany is very different from the typically more centralized, unitary European states such as Great Britain, France, or Sweden. Making comparisons among democratic states When comparisons are made between and among democratic political systems, one of the first steps is to distinguish between presidential, semipresidential, and parliamentary institutions. The United States is the model for most of the few functioning presidential systems, which are characterized by the

The latter example involves botanical gardens and sites from the eighteenth century, places that are linked to the botanist Carl Linnaeus in Sweden ( whc.unesco.org ). At local, regional, or

There are few other settings in the world where a native chief can call the Minister of Foreign Affairs to account. Likewise, the Swedish Saami representative used the home-​turf ministerial meeting to present a negative picture of indigenous rights in Sweden: here in the Giron area, industrial development  –​in particular mining  –​poses a tremendous challenge to the local Saami reindeer herding people.
