For Wales, see England: language, nationhood and identity / Martyn Ford. - Third edition. - Stroud, Gloucestershire: Amberley, 2016. - 127 pages: illustrations (some color), maps (some color); 24 cm.
Includes bibliographical references (pages 125-127).
In this book Martyn Ford traces the history of Welsh from the early medieval period, through the Act of Union between England and Wales in the sixteenth century, to industrial Wales in Victorian times, and then during the twentieth century where due to mass migration Wales had become a land of two cultures and thus two peoples. The Welsh language is a defining characteristic of Welsh identity and this book aims to analyse the current state of the Welsh language, its relevance to Welsh culture today and the policies which attempt to protect it.

A Concise History of Wales / Geraint H. Jenkins. - Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2007. - XI, 345 s. : il. ; 22 cm.
Based on the most recent historical research and current debates about Wales and Welshness, this volume offers the most up-to-date, authoritative and accessible account of the period from Neanderthal times to the opening of the Senedd, the new home of the National Assembly for Wales, in 2006. Within a remarkably brief and stimulating compass, Geraint H. Jenkins explores the emergence of Wales as a nation, its changing identities and values, and the transformations its people experienced and survived throughout the centuries. In the face of seemingly overwhelming odds, the Welsh never reconciled themselves to political, social and cultural subordination, and developed ingenious ways of maintaining a distinctive sense of their otherness. The book ends with the coming of political devolution and the emergence of a greater measure of cultural pluralism. Professor Jenkins's lavishly illustrated volume provides enthralling material for scholars, students, general readers, and travellers to Wales.

Wales / W. A. Poucher. - Londyn : Constable and Company, 1981. - 203, [ 4 ] s. : foto. ; 27 cm.
Although there are a few pictures that are not taken in and around the Snowdnia region, the vast majority are, and therefore this book will be real eye-candy to those who love being in the wild parts of North Wales. The pictures are particularly beautiful and clearly demonstrate Poucher's love and familiarity with the area, with some shots taken from more unusual vantage points, often having required a long walk in.

The Story of Wales / Jon Gower; an introduction Huw Edwards. - London : BBC Books, 2012. - XVI, 366, [2] strony ; 22 cm.
Słowo kluczowe: history ; Wales
Bibliografia strony 233-254.
An ambitious new one-volume history, to accompany a 6-part BBC series presented by Huw Edwards. Covering from earliest settlements to the present day, "The Story of Wales "explores a country constantly on the move and connected with the wider world, and a people who have reacted with energy and invention to changing times and opportunities. Revisiting the major turning points in Welsh history -- from the fledgling Welsh state under Llywelyn the Last and the ravages of the Black Death, through to its transformation into an economic power with the Industrial Revolution and its participation in the creation of a modern British Welfare State and the economic boom of the 1940s and 50s -- Jon Gower re-examines many of the myths and misconceptions about Wales and the Welsh, uncovering rich evidence of its outward-looking dynamism and its important role on the world stage. Accompanying a landmark BBC series, and with an introduction by series presenter Huw Edwards, The Story of Wales""is an epic account of Welsh history for a new generation.

(Gender Studies in Wales)
Bibliografia strony 422-445. Indeks.
The last two decades have seen big changes within a small nation; the distinctiveness of Wales, in terms of its political life and culture, has grown considerably in that time. This edited collection by a range of eminent Welsh writers, emerging academics and creative artists examines what is distinctive about Wales and Welshness in an interdisciplinary yet comprehensive manner. The core concepts of gender, class and identity are explored throughout the book, which presents twelve chapters in three distinct yet overlapping thematic sections: Wales, Welshness, Language and Identity, Education; Labour Markets and Gender in Wales; and Welsh Public Life, Social Policy, Class and Inequality. The chapters explore the role of men and women in Wales and of Wales itself as a nation, an economy, and a centre of partially devolved governance, raising questions related to equality, policy and progression. The collection also features photographs, graphic art and poetic verse that both represent and extend the central arguments of the book.

In the wake of the Scottish vote on independence, questions of sovereignty, devolution, and local control have perhaps never been more salient. This book explores the evolution of the idea of national identity in modern Britain as it affected Wales. It ranges historically from the French Revolution and its aftershocks to the wide-ranging effects of World War I and on to present debates over decentralization and ties with Europe, while also offering close looks at key personalities, like Lloyd George, the first (and thus far only) Welsh prime minister. Drawing on both his extensive experience in politics and his decades of academic study, Kenneth O. Morgan has written what is likely to be the definitive work on this topic.
