5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best, 23 Oct. 2007
This review is from: A History of Wales (Paperback)
As a librarian, I'm sometimes asked which is the best one-volume work on the history of Wales. Until the first edition of John Davies' book was published, this was something of a problem. The best books on Welsh history dealt with particular periods, while there were drawbacks to all the complete one-volume histories.

John Davies changed all that. Always objective and fair-minded, he neither parrots cliches, as so many books on Wales do, nor rides his own hobby-horses. He gives space to political history, social history, economic history and cultural history. He manages to cram a remarkable quantity of information into 700-odd pages, while still keeping it very easy to read.

The second edition has a new chapter taking us up to the Welsh Assembly era. Sufficient to say that it is of the same high standard as the remainder of the book. If you only buy one book on Welsh history, make it this one.
