Degrees of Influence
A Memorial Volume for Glanmor Williams
Distributed for University of Wales Press
Few Welsh scholars of the modern era have served their profession, university, and country as admirably as Sir Glanmor Williams (1921–2005), and this volume recounts his remarkable contributions to the flourishing of Welsh history during the past half century. Highlighting the political, economic, educational, and social threads in his work—including the launch of the Welsh History Review, the major publication series Studies in Welsh History, the Oxford History of Wales, and the Glamorgan County History, as well as his charming and modest memoir A Lie—this memorial tribute pays honor to an eminent figure in Welsh public life.
