Summary, in English

The Swedish state-funded "own-home activity" lasted between 1904 and 1948. In this study the main focus is on the background and the early development og this activity on the Swedish countryside, i.e. on the creation of small-holdings. The dissertation gives the social and political background to the movement; shows the spread of state-funded small-holding in the Swedish countyside during the period 1904-45; gives examples of the impact the activity had on landscape and settlement in souternmost Sweden.
