Review Quotes

“ . . . his landmark study . . . has taken an earth-mover to the historical landscape: hereafter we look at a different political prospect. His questions and approach will shape the necessary wider research assult on Labour politics. Those who join him in this will need to keep his volume handy if they are to do justice to the task.” –Planet

Socialist History

“Chris Williams’s important new analysis of Rhondda in the period between 1885 and 1951 provides this necessary re-interpretation. In re-assessing the accepted truths of Labour’s ascendancy he has produced an exhaustive, convincing and, in many ways, iconoclastic analysis of key features of its rise to power and subsequent consolidation . . . This book breaks new ground. In producing what will be the definitive study of the Labour Party in the Rhondda the author has undoubtedly set the standard for what, as Williams himself suggests, should be the next step in developing a more comprehensive history of working-class politics in south Wales.” –Socialist History

Local Historian

“For the political historian the book is a must; for the local historian it is an intriguing example of how local issues intertwine with the national perspective.” –Local Historian
