It is a wide-ranging work which nece ssarily embraces numerous aspects of social, political, economic and cultural history. The role of drink and drinking in Wales on the eve of the "temperance reformation" is examined and the author then traces the development of the temperance movement from its suasionist phase to the attempt, under a distinctly nationalist impulse, to secure parliamentary legislation on the drink issue. Throughout the study run the themes of nonconformity, political and cultural nationalism, reformist pressure group politics, and the history of recreation." - from the dj. Contents: 1.
