dc.description.abstract

Immigrants and refugees, and especially those identified by their dark skin, are now the chief symbols of Swedes' disappointment with northern Europeans' gradual loss of economic security amid globalization. But the Stureplan people are a further hated anti-symbol of what is nostalgically regarded as an economically secure and egalitarian past, which, in fact, always included a great inequality of opportunity and esteem across the diverse white-skinned regions and ethnic groups of Sweden.
