A. S. ZHERBIN, I. P. SHASKOLSKY. The Peasant War in Finland in the End of the 16th Century.
The authors support H. Ylikangas' concept that the greatest peasant war in the history of Finland "The Club War" of 1596 - 1597 was caused not by accidental coincidence (as was though by Finnish historians) but by the increase of the feudal burden. This massive anti-feudal movement can be compared to peasant wars in Russia and in West European countries.
