A History of Wales

by John Davies - £16.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780140284751 | ISBN 10: 0140284753

Stretching from the Ice Ages to the present day, this masterful account traces the political, social and cultural history of the land that has come to be called Wales.
Spanning prehistoric hill forts and Roman ruins to the Reformation, the Industrial Revolution and the series of strikes by Welsh miners in the late twentieth century, this is the definitive history of an enduring people: a unique and compelling exploration of the origins of the Welsh nation, its development and its role in the modern world. This new edition also considers the political situation in Wales as it enters a new era following the establishment of the National Assembly.

"Holding its 700-page substance is like having all Wales in one's hand."
(Jan Morris, The Times)
"Outstanding... He grasps the story of his country with immense confidance and tells it in vigorous and lucid prose."
(Trevor Fishlock, Daily Telegraph)
