Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book surveys the history of Wales in modern times. It explores first a society which was dominated by the landed gentry then divides at the Industrial Revolution which transformed the face and fortune of Wales, as well as its place in British society. In both sections the author gives due attention to the economic and social structure before investigating administrative, political, religious and educational developments. There is a judicious mix of narrative and analysis in a study based both on the author's research and on the mass of exciting work published by Welsh historians in recent years. A sense of history has been vital in Welsh society, as is evident from the currency given to myths from the Middle Ages onwards. More recently it has resulted in a plethora of innovatory and invigorating studies based on rigorous historical investigation. This book makes an important contribution to extending the means by which anyone with an interest in Wales may investigate that history.

Synopsis:

The first of two volumes on the social history of Wales in the period 1870andndash;1945, People, Places and Passions concentrates on the social events and changes which created, shaped, and drove modern Wales. Russell Davies examines a range of social forces little considered elsewhere by studies in Welsh history, accounting for the role played by the people of Wales in times of war, in the age of the British Empire, and in technological change and innovation, as the Welsh traveled the developing capitalist and consumerist world in search of fame and fortune.

Synopsis:

A fully updated second edition of Gareth Elwyn Jones??'s highly-regarded survey of the history of Wales in modern times, first published in 1984.
