Format: Paperback
This is a must for anyone studying Welsh history in the 19th Century. In fact, such is its accessability it is a great read for anyone with an interest in history, and, in particular, working class history. Prof. Williams,or Gwyn Alf, as most knew him as, was a truly gifted historian and writer. The book reads not as a dusty scholastic tome but as a vivid telling of what happened. You wonder, at times, if he really was there. Of course, he was not but such is the power of his writing.If you are used to history lessons from dusty teachers about Kings and Queens of England and wondered what the workers were doing then this is the book for you. It is the definitive book on the Merthyr Rising which is. at last. becoming known as a rising rather then a riot, for a rising is what it was. Read the book and you will know. The only bad thing about the book is that Gwyn Alf has died and you realise what a loss we have suffered, read it and remember.." The workers united can never be defeated, Cymru am byth"
