The events of 1485–1660 were decisive in the development of modern Wales and, in the first of the four-volume Welsh History Text Books series, Hugh Thomas offers a scholarly, balanced, and informative discussion of this significant period. From the crowning of Henry Tudor as King of England in 1485 to the profoundly transformed religious, cultural, and economic conditions at the end of the years under survey, Wales and Welsh society would stride forward in a committed partnership within a greater Britain. A History of Wales 1485–1660 is a landmark work of Welsh history.
