This book offers an original combination of culture and narrative theory with an empirical study of identity and political action. It is at once a powerful critique of rational choice theories of action and a solution to the historiographical puzzle of why Sweden went to war in 1630. Erik Ringmar argues that people act not only for reasons of interest, but also for reasons of identity, and the latter are, in fact, more fundamental.

The sarcastic review of this book posted by "a reader" in 1999 is unfair. It is a well-written integration of theory and historical case study, the basic argument being that identity precedes interest (a state must know what it is before knowing what it wants). The illustrative case study shows that Sweden entered the 30 Years War for identity-centered rather than interest-centered reasons. Readers who wish to can skip some of the detailed historical analysis without losing the book's insights. The basic theoretical argument is now familiar in the literature, but this book does add more than a couple of fresh angles to it.

This book really hits home the powerful decision by some bloke to enter the thirty year war. It examines in infinite details the decision that this man may have taken when deciding to commit himself to the war. It is really great to consider that there are still people out there who not only find the time to write such interesting books but also believe others may want to read them. I must thank Erik Ringmar for writing the perfect book on how to solve insomnia, with out this book I feel sleep may be a problem, but not now I own a copy.
