Scots Independent

“This anthology should be essential reading for anyone wanting to know how Wales and the Welsh are currently thinking.” –Scots Independent

Books in Wales

Compass Points, serious though its agenda may be, ought to be a good bedside book, in that each article is sufficiently interesting to be read to its end, but is so independent as not to drive the reader forward into insomnia.” –Books in Wales
