An exemplar of what political biography should be. It's critical and sympathetic where it needs to be and it tells us as much as about his personality as his politics. It's contextualized without getting lost in detail and it's a good read. Gwynfor was far from perfect but he is an immensely important figure in post-war history and one that deserves a biography like this. If more historians from outside Wales read it we might get a more nuanced account of the UK. If more people in Wales read it we might correct a few of the myths that prevail about the man and the events he was involved with.
