9780192852786: The Foundations of Modern Wales 1642-1780 (History of Wales) (v. 4)

Between 1642 and 1780, powerful social forces transformed Wales from an impoverished, downtrodden, and sleepy nation to one on the threshold of unprecedented social, economic, and political change. Drawing on an extensive range of original and published material, Jenkins reveals how demographic growth, agrarian advancements, the development of heavy industries and trade, and improved communications created the foundation for modern Wales. Among the colorful and influential personalities who appear in this book are Vavasor Powell, Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Edward Lhuyd, and Sir Humphrey Mackworth.

About the Author:

Geraint H. Jenkins is at University College of Wales, Aberystwyth.

Review:


"A pioneering book...Not the least of the favors rendered by this book is to make available for virtually the first time a great deal of material existing in Welsh on the religious history of the period....It is hard to think of anyone other than Dr. Jenkins who could have accomplished the task of covering such a difficult period in Welsh history, a task done here with resounding success."--Albion


"Jenkins captures the moods of the time with great sympathy. Attention to detail is well balanced with anecdotal quotation written by commentators contemporary to the eras he examines. The text is alive and makes compelling reading for student, teacher, and general reader."--American Historical Review


"The present work, covering an important but rather neglected period of Welsh history, maintains the same high standards of thorough research, clarity and vigor of expression, and interpretive strength shows by its predecessors....Overall, this work has clearly established itself as the standard history of Wales. Recommended for college, university, and public libraries."--Choice


"With fine and lasting scholarship, Geraint Jenkins has filled in a void in the history of Britain."--The Sunday Times (London)


"His personal touches are presented with modesty, balance, and a careful sense of humor...Geraint Jenkins writes with a beautiful balance and an unusual measure of grace."--The Eighteenth Century: A Current Bibliography
