Dyfyniadau

'This is a well-written, carefully analysed and perceptive study of the experiences of the second largest group of immigrants into Wales.' www gwales.com 'a confident and comprehensive study of an area largely neglected by historians...essential reading.' Irish Post 'A scholarly, comprehensive, entertaining account of a fascinating subject.' Western Mail

'...[a] well researched study...most welcome...a refreshing addition to our understanding of the complexity of Welsh politics.' Albion "This is a work at the cutting edge of scholarship but it is written with a grace and fluency which is not always associated with books derived from PhD theses. One of its strongest features is the way in which meticulous examination of the internal history of Wales is combined with a clear sense of the world beyond Wales. It is clearly part of the "new British history" which takes as its subject "the totality of relationships in these islands." Throughout the book the distinctive experience of women in the migration is given full attention. Clearly this is a work which anyone with a claim to know about modern Wales must read and it shows that younger scholars are adapting to a new agenda formed by issues such as ethnicity and gender." -Planet
