Abstract

Protest is a cultural act: it obliges culture to explain and defend itself and offers new perspectives on how the world could be. These essays, by new and established academics, and representatives of the media and politics show how protest in twentieth-century Wales can be read as cultural history. Contributions include topics such as: the Suffragettes; nationalism; campaign for Welsh broadcasting; peace movements; Welsh Conservatism since 1997; Greenham and its legacy; the Parliament for Wales campaign; and Saunders Lewis & Waldo Williams - Anglo-Welsh poetry. This work is essential and thought-provoking reading for students of contemporary Wales, offering a picture of a country that is often divided against itself - but not always in expected ways.
