Journal of Educational Administration and History

“This is a most scholarly work, very thoroughly researched and well written . . . should be of interest not only to Welsh scholars but to historians of higher education more generally, since in describing the fortunes of Welsh students, he elucidates the complex systems at Oxford, Cambridge and the Inns of Court during a period of radical change. The formal and informal methods of instruction at the universities and the Inns of Court, their social and financial organization and their curricular content are all examined from a great variety of sources and with commendable clarity.” –Journal of Educational Administration and History

English Historical Review

“Griffith's book is careful, thorough and informative; it will be valuable for historians of English education as well as for Welsh.” –English Historical Review

Teaching History

“. . . should find an eager readership among teachers of Welsh history and those teachers in English who want to develop a National Curriculum that truely has a British dimension . . . a masterful study . . .” –Teaching History
