It looks back to the impact of change in Europe and the wider world from the 1789 revolution in France onwards, covering key personalities such as Lloyd George, the impact of the first world war in Wales, and relates to contemporary debates on Scottish independence and the connections with Europe. This book opens up wider issues of open government, foreign policy, the rule of law and and cultural diversity" (4ème de couv.)
Crime, protest and police in modern British society : in honour of David Jones( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays offers much new, original and challenging material in the fields of crime, protest and policing. Employing the skills of both the historian and the criminologist, it ranges across rural and urban worlds, presenting both highly localized case studies and the broad sweep of a synoptic survey, and approaching the genre from both a historical and a cultural perspective." "This book raises issues of central concern not only to scholars and academics, but to everyone concerned with crime, justice and order within the complexities of modern society. It does honour to a leading figure in the modern renaissance of Welsh history but also outlines, in its own right, issues that illuminate the tension between individual rights and freedoms on the one hand, and the imperatives of the ordered, policed society on the other."--Jacket
