Understanding Contemporary Wales Reviews


There is certainly a market for this book - I can see it on the reading lists of a number of sociology and social policy modules - having an up-to-date single volume would be a valuable addition. Dr. Paul Chaney, Editor Contemporary Wales This book sounds interesting and given the need for up-to-date, readable surveys of Welsh affairs, I would have thought it would find its way onto reading lists. Prof. Chris Williams I commend The Open University and the University of Wales Press for pulling together these authors and these themes into this major and timely work on contemporary Wales. On the tenth anniversary of devolution, we know for certain that there are huge changes in political accountability. What we don't know is whether this historic political change has been paralleled in other areas of society and in what way. This book does a great job in stimulating a big debate in this area. Rhodri Morgan, First Minister, National Assembly for Wales (2000-2009) This is an excellent, up-to-date, evidence-based critique of contemporary Wales. It provides a comprehensive overview for the newcomer but also offers extraordinary insights for those of us who think we know Wales well. Professor Teresa Rees CBE, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research), Cardiff University, UK
