Social History Society Bulletin

“The aim of this book is to explain the struggle for the minds of the leaders and active members of the organised working class in south Wales during the first half of the twentieth century. The book shows how the workers' education movement was divided, almost from the outset, by a deep idealogical gulf between the Workers' Educational Association (WEA) and the Central Labour College (CLC) movement. . .This is a well-documentede study which, unlike previous writing on the workers' education movement, examines both the WEA and CLC movements as essentailly a single phenomenon. It thus avoids the often openly partisan approaches to these two movements adopted in earlier studies.” –Social History Society Bulletin

Book News Wales

“This is the definitive book on its subject and the importance of its topic together with the author's broader vision makes it one that those interested in twentieth-century Wales will ignore at their peril.” –Book News Wales

Journal of Educational Administration and History

“The readership of this fine book should certainly extend well beyond those whose research interests are confined to the history of education in Wales.” –Journal of Educational Administration and History

Labour History Review

“For those who think there is no more to be said on the topic, Leaders and Teachers will come as a surprise. . .Lewis's study therefore represents a srious and thoroughly helpful contribution to the study of the British workers' education movement.” –Labour History Review
