“This deeply researched and sensitively written study focuses on a remarkable life that spanned three continents. Here was an individual who was at various times a frontiersman, army officer, popular novelist and patriotic historian. His life embraced imperialism and Welsh patriotism, and the author navigates these themes superbly, in the process illuminating neglected features of the past."
Paul O’Leary, Aberystwyth University
“This pioneering study examines the evolution of socialism and its political manifestations in Wales between the 1790s and 1912 located within the economic, social and linguistic contexts of the regions of Wales. It is also a timely and welcome contribution to the current debate about the future of Labour and socialism.”
