‘The Welsh Liberals’: new book published this month

welsh liberalsPublished this month: The Welsh Liberals: The History of the Liberal and Liberal Democrat parties in Wales.

Despite being Wales’ oldest political party this is the first published history of the Welsh Liberal Party or its successor, the Welsh Liberal Democrat Party.

The Welsh Liberals: The History of the Liberal and Liberal Democrat parties in Wales charts the highs and lows of an extraordinary party.

This comprehensive study includes over 40 interviews with senior figures from within the Welsh Liberal Party, the Welsh SDP and Welsh Liberal Democrat Party.

You can order it from Welsh Academic Press’s website here – they are offering the book at £45 (rather than £60) for direct orders.

Launched at the Welsh Lib Dems’ Spring conference in Newport, it’s earned high praise:

‘Truly a pioneering volume – a comprehensive, authoritative study of the history of the Liberal Party in Wales from 1868 until the end of the twentieth century. Thoroughly researched and assembled from an array of disparate source materials, compellingly written, the book fills a distinct gap in the political historiography of modern Wales and Britain.’
Dr J. Graham Jones, former Head of the Welsh Political Archive

‘The Welsh Liberals vividly illustrates the massive fluctuations in the Liberal Party’s fortunes in Wales…It is a dramatic political story, succinctly told and well explained.’
Dr Alun Wyburn-Powell, University of Leicester
