The Communist Party of Great Britain and the National Question in Wales, 1920-1991

This book draws on substantial new archival research to present the first in-depth study of the Communist Party's attitude to devolution in Wales, to Welsh nationhood, and Welsh identity, and the party's relationship with labor and nationalist movements as they related to these issues. Douglas Jones sets the inquiry in context of the rapid changes in twentieth-century Welsh society, debates on devolution and identity within the British left, the role of nationalism within the communist movement, and more.
