“Overpowered and outnumbered as it was from the beginning, the anglicization of Welsh education was inevitable, concludes the author . . . His account of developments between the 1889 Act, which established a distinctive system of `higher grade' intermediate schools, to the Butler Act of 1944, which sought to impose a selective tripartite pattern alien to the spirit of the Welsh nation - dedicated to the cause of y werin, the common people - is exhaustively documented and impeccably selective in its use of a wide range of sources...it remains absorbingly readable throughout and, in view of the frustrating controls and bitter conflicts with which it is concerned, admirably neutral in its judgments...” –British Book News

Welsh History Review

“This is certainly the most sophisticated history of a Welsh educational topic yet to be published, both in the detailed use it makes of public records, and in the acuteness of its political and social analysis.” –Welsh History Review
