From the Welsh History Review:
 
"Few periods of Welsh history have attracted more attention in schools and colleges than that covered by Mr Hugh Thomas's book. The events of that period have certainly had a decisive influence upon the development of modern Wales, but students and pupils wishing to acquaint themselves with the background have for long felt the need of a comprehensive basic text-book. Mr Thomas has now met this need, and this volume ...provides a sound survey not only of the political and religious history of the period, but also of its cultural, social and economic aspects...'"(Welsh History Review)
