A Concise History Of Wales
A fully updated second edition of Gareth Elwyn Jones's highly-regarded survey of the history of Wales in modern times, first published in 1984.
Affectionately known as 'little England beyond Wales', Pembrokeshire has a rich and distinct history and culture drawn from the predominantly English speaking south and the Welsh speaking north of the county. This title will provide a concise yet scholarly history of the county and its people. The authors have been selected both for their undoubted scholarship and intimate knowledge of their own particular regions and for their ability to interpret and communicate that knowledge in a lively and concise style to students, scholars and tourists alike.
Examines this most distinctive of Welsh counties. The author discusses the landscape, people, customs and significant centres of religious worship in their historical context from the dark ages to the recent past. He also discusses Cardiganshire's past - emigration due to poverty, geographical differences between parts of the county, and sport.
