A Look Inside
Main Description
Questions, hypotheses, and concepts drawn from postcolonial theory are used to understand the culture and politics of postdevolution Wales in these essays. Beginning with discussions of how Wales, as a nation, has been understood historiographically, as well as historically, this analysis focuses on Welsh cultural differences in terms of literature, mass media, music, drama, and the visual arts.
