At the beginning of the 21st century Norway is a country which seems to have come closest to being an achieved utopia of the European Left. Not only is it one of the richest countries in the world; the UN has chosen it - for the fifth time in a row - as "the best country to live in". 
In the eyes of the outside world, Norway has succeeded to create a Great Good Place on the planet: it is an epitome of welfare, equality, justice, environmental concern, and enlightened samaritanism. This book attempts to explore the cultural sources of the Norwegian success. What are the significant myths, images and codes of conduct that have propelled the Norwegian "regime of goodness"? How have they evolved over time? Who were their codifiers?
