Am y llyfr

Llyfr sy'n edrych ar y modd yr oedd carchardai Cymreig yn anfodlon gyda'r drefn newydd. Bwrir golwg fanwl ar ddigwyddiadau yng ngharchar Caerfyrddin yn y cyfnod 1840-1877, sy'n cynnig asesiad o'r berthynas a fodolai rhwng carchar lleol, y staff a'r carcharorion, a'r gymuned.


A"The appeal of an attractively produced tome is enhanced by the inclusion of eight illustrations. The endnote references are unfailingly full, scholarly and genuinely helpful - as indeed is the full bibliography of sources used. It could also act a template for similar sorely needed research work to be undertaken in other areas within Wales and indeed beyond. I commend the volume most highly.A"J. Graham Jones, PlanetA"A Want of Order and Good Discipline provides one of the most engaging and illuminating accounts of local imprisonment in the nineteenth century I have encountered. This is a highly readable and engaging analysis of local imprisonment and should be read by all those interested in this field of study.A"Helen Johnston, British Journal of Criminology, Vol. 48, No. 5, Sept 2008
