Reviews

'The book's strength is its detailed treatment of the intellectual, individual and organisational responses by Nonconformity to the 'social question' in Wales'. (Labour History Review) ' ... this is a book which will command respect and attention from all working in the field.' <i(Congregational History Circle) 'This handsomely produced volume ... will be welcomed by students of Welsh nonconformity and Labour history alike.' (Books in Wales) ' ... well researched ... ' (Choice) 'His work is original, well-informed, and a valuable addition to our knowledge of modern Wales.' (Expository Times) 'As a full published study of Labour and nonconformity, the book is unique in regard not only to Wales but to Britain. Important courses in both Welsh and English, including oral history records, have been effectively utilised in order to produce a highly stimulating account ... Dr Pope's study arouses some questioning as well as admiration. But his crowded and colourful tapestry of nonconformity and Labour in Wales is generally a fascinating depiction of a unique, if tense and ambiguous, relationship.' (Welsh History Review) 'Labour's inroads into the Liberal hegemony by 1914 and the complete rout of Liberalism in urban Wales by 1922 are, therefore, of great significance in understanding changes in political culture ... This book seeks to explore the response of Nonconformity to the rise of labour between 1906 and 1939 ... This is a useful introduction to religious debates about social issues and provides a sure-footed guide to broad theological trends ... ' (Social History Bulletin)
