Modern Wales : a concise history, c. 1485-1979 by Gareth Elwyn Jones( Book )

28 editions published between 1984 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book surveys the history of Wales in modern times. It explores first a society which was dominated by the landed gentry then divides at the Industrial Revolution which transformed the face and fortune of Wales, as well as its place in British society. In both sections the author gives due attention to the economic and social structure before investigating administrative, political, religious and educational developments. There is a judicious mix of narrative and analysis in a study based both on the author's research and on the mass of exciting work published by Welsh historians in recent years. A sense of history has been vital in Welsh society, as is evident from the currency given to myths from the Middle Ages onwards. More recently it has resulted in a plethora of innovatory and invigorating studies based on rigorous historical investigation. This book makes an important contribution to extending the means by which anyone with an interest in Wales may investigate that history

The aim of this book is to bring methods of land-market and land-price analysis to the foreground. It relates substantive research findings for land and urban development and blends these with a focus on research design and methodology. Its findings have relevance beyond the topics of housing and land: it broaches the whole question of how research design and general approach may lead to fundamentally different findings, different priorities, and different policy prescriptions and preoccupations. It is based on work done in the Third World, but is also relevant to studies of the industrialized world

Degrees of influence : a memorial volume for Glanmor Williams( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few Welsh scholars in the modern era have served their profession, university and country as admirably as Sir Glanmor Williams, who died, aged eighty four, on 24 February 2005. By dint of intellectual brilliance, far-sighted vision and exceptional personal charm, he achieved great eminence in the field of Welsh historical studies. It is no exaggeration to claim that the flourishing condition of Welsh history during the last half century is in large measure attributable to his influence. This book seeks to draw out the religious, political, economic, social and educational threads in his work within a local, county, national and British context. It also examines his methodology in the context of the work of other historians within Wales and beyond."--Jacket
