Controls and Conflicts in Welsh Secondary Education 1889-1944 Reviews
"This is certainly the most sophisticated history of a Welsh educational topic yet to be published, both in the detailed use it makes of public records, and in the acuteness of its political and social analysis." -Welsh History Review "Overpowered and outnumbered as it was from the beginning, the anglicization of Welsh education was inevitable, concludes the author . . . His account of developments between the 1889 Act, which established a distinctive system of higher grade'' intermediate schools, to the Butler Act of 1944, which sought to impose a selective tripartite pattern alien to the spirit of the Welsh nation - dedicated to the cause of y werin, the common people - is exhaustively documented and impeccably selective in its use of a wide range of sources...it remains absorbingly readable throughout and, in view of the frustrating controls and bitter conflicts with which it is concerned, admirably neutral in its judgments..." -British Book News
