Review Quotes
Times Higher Education Supplement

“David Jones’s splendid monograph which, at the risk of using a cliché, must be described as definitive.” –Times Higher Education Supplement

The Observer

“Brings to bear on the subject all the art and diligence of modern scholarship . . . a persuasive, original work.” –The Observer

Times Literary Supplement

“Much of the value of the book lies in its brilliant analysis of the socio-economic structure of the coalfield, and of its distinctive political tradition . . . This splendid, humane book makes us reflect anew, both on Chartism more generally and on Welsh radicalism in particular.” –Times Literary Supplement
