During the past fifty years immigrants from 160 nations have transformed Sweden from an ethnically relatively homogeneous society into an intensely multi-ethnic one. By the beginning of the 1990s, more than one million out of a population of eight and a half million were immigrants or children of immigrants. By the early 1990s some ten percent of the Swedish population are foreign born. This change in Swedish life and culture results in considerable tension and misunderstandings. Perhaps, Mansson would contend, in no area is this more evident than in love relationships. In this book he sets out to explore different aspects of the encounter between immigrant males and Swedish sexual and cohabitation culture, and to analyze this encounter in relationship to the important elements in the cultural patterns and processes that have shaped and still shape immigrant male's gender-role specific socialization. In a world increasingly confronted with similar tensions and adaptations, this study is of considerable interests to sociologists and others concerned with contemporary multicultural society.
