Am y llyfr

Wedi'i eni yng Nghymru cyn symud i Lundain yn ddiweddarach yn ei fywyd, Richard Price (1723–91) yw un o’r meddylwyr mawr a rwydd anghofir yn oes Ymoleuad y ddeunawfed ganrif. Yn ladmerydd hawliau sifil, diwygiad gwleidyddol a chwyldroadau America a Ffrainc, cyfrannodd hefyd yn sylweddol ym meysydd aswiriant bywyd, mathemateg, demograffeg ac athroniaeth foesol. Mae'r bywgraffiad hwn, sy’n gofnod cronolegol o fywyd Price, yn dadlennu cyfraniad oesol y Cymro rhyfeddol hwn drwy ei waith cyhoeddedig a'i ohebiaeth doreithiog ag enwogion megis Franklin, Jefferson, Adams, Mirabeau a Priestley.

Dyfyniadau

‘A much-admired and dedicated Dissenting minister, Richard Price was also a great thinker, a prolific author and a friend and correspondent to some of the greatest intellectuals and leading politicians of his day. He published impressive and influential works in a wide range of subjects: religion, moral philosophy, mathematics, finance and politics in particular. Making excellent use of Price’s numerous publications, private journal and extensive correspondence, Paul Frame has written an intelligent, attractive, accessible and well-informed biography covering the private life and public career of this very great Welshman. His study deserves to be read by all those interested in the European Enlightenment, the Age of the American and French Revolutions, and the Atlantic world of the eighteenth century.’
–Harry T. Dickinson, Emeritus Professor of History, University of Edinburgh
