‘Who Speaks for Wales? is a truly landmark publication. It has had a profound effect on me and on countless others. The new afterword to this expanded centenary edition shows how Raymond Williams’s thinking is as important and relevant today as it has ever been.’
-Michael Sheen, actor and activist

‘Anchored solidly in Welsh history and culture, this collection of essays restores nuance and depth to critical studies of Raymond Williams. A bracing introduction and new afterword cogently parse through problematic terms like “exile” and “marginality” to recover Williams’s Welsh experience as an essential component of his critical practice. The volume provides a definitive account of Williams’s complex engagement with Wales as a template for his understanding of British imperialism, nationalism and class struggle.’
-Professor Gauri Viswanathan, Columbia University
