A History of Wales 1660-1815 is the second volume of a trilogy on the history of Wales from 1485 to 1906.  Beginning with the political activity of the period, the author traces developments in education, the religious explosion of the Methodist Revival, the roots of industrial growth, the rhythms of agricultural life, the stirrings of Welsh Radicalism and the strands which made up the cultural revival of the eighteenth century.
