Teaching History

“David Jones has shown that he is both a revisionist and readable historian . . . His work is simply a pleasure to read: informative and thought provoking . . . points the way for teachers who wish to provide comparison within the National Curriculum. It is a book not to be missed.” –Teaching History
Probation Journal

“Crime in 19th Century Wales is one of those rare academic texts which manages to be as interesting and entertaining as it is authoritative and informative . . . Lucidly written, impeccably researched and well presented, the book is to be warmly recommended to anyone seeking to understand and influence the criminal justice system of our own times.” –Probation Journal
Book News from Wales

“. . . an innovatory piece of social history, which contributes to discussion beyond the bounds of Wales . . . buy, read and enjoy this marvellous book.” –Book News from Wales
In the late 1960s a social psychologists highly critical of the laboratory-experimental approach. This text provides an account of the complex body of work that is critical of traditional psychological approaches. Paper edition (unseen), $12.95. Examines how crime was defined and responded to in 19th-century Wales, and queries why, after rising rapidly during the first half of the century, crimes such as theft and assault declined thereafter until 1900. The crime statistics show that Wales had, and still has, a different profile from the rest of the UK. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
