This is an integrated range of studies, focussing on Wales, by a long-established, internationally-recognised academic authority and member of the House of Lords, on the advance of democracy and the evolving idea of national identity in modern Britain. Looking back to the impact of change in Europe and the wider world from the 1789 revolution in France onwards, this book covers key personalities such as Lloyd George, the impact of the First World War in Wales, and relates to contemporary debates on Scottish independence and the connections with Europe. It opens up wider issues of open government, foreign policy, the rule of law and and cultural diversity.
