Editorial Reviews

Journal of Educational Administration and History

“This book is a very worthy and impressive achievement. It will be many years before Welsh education again receives such full and lucid treatment. I have little doubt that this will become one of the landmarks of the historiography of Welsh education. It deserves a readership far beyond Wales because it raises and addresses issues which are of global concern at the present time.” –Journal of Educational Administration and History

Welsh History Review

“. . . a masterly survey of educational developments since the end of Roman Wales . . . a skilful analytical narrative packed with fascinating detail which challenges the reader with thought-provoking discussions over a wide range of issues . . . This will be the standard history of Welsh education for a long time to come and can be highly recommended as an overview of the field. . . this distinguished volume is a work of original synthesis which makes a major contribution both to Welsh historiography and to Welsh educational scholarship. It is published with the high standards which we have come to expect from the University of Wales Press . . .” –Welsh History Review
