Legislating for Wales

Thomas Glyn Watkin with Daniel Greenberg

‘This volume is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the fundamental changes devolution has brought to the governance of Wales, and in particular how Welsh Government and the National Assembly came to be defined as a permanent part of the constitutional arrangements of the UK.’
- Lord Elis-Thomas, First Presiding Officer of the National Assembly

Emyr Humphreys

M. Wynn Thomas

‘Emyr Humphreys’s achievement is, as M. Wynn Thomas argues, Faulknerian in its epic scale, chronicling the great cultural shifts that Wales has undergone over the last century – from the complex pressures of nineteenth-century Nonconformity to Wales’s struggle for identity in our contemporary globalised world. While the perceptive readings of this study will give new insights to those familiar with Humphreys’s work, it will be indispensable also to those coming to this major writer for the first time.’
- Professor Tony Brown, Bangor University

The Architecture of Wales

From the First to the Twenty-First Century

John B. Hilling

‘A superb updating of Hilling’s definitive 1976 survey, the first substantial study of the nation’s architecture on my own or anyone else’s bookshelf. This hugely welcome renewal is more comprehensive, better illustrated and certainly as indispensable as the landmark original.’
- Jonathan Adams RIBA, Architect of the Wales Millennium Centre

The Postsecular Political Philosophy of Jürgen Habermas

Translating the Sacred

Dafydd Huw Rees

‘Rees’s monograph is a critical account of Habermas’s writings on religion and the idea of postsecularism in his work. It is comprehensive in scope, rich in texture and replete with insights. Rees’s scholarship and critical engagements with the material are exemplary in their clarity and concision; scholars and students who want to know about Habermas’s late work have reason to read this book.’
- Dr Gordon Finlayson, Centre of Social and Political Thought, University of Sussex

Literary Illumination

The Evolution of Artificial Light in Nineteenth Century Literature

Richard Leahy

This book focuses on the reflexive relationship between nineteenth-century literature and the illumination of the same period. It explores the influence that artificial light had over the symbolism, imagery, and content of the literature of the time, taking a historical-materialist approach to the presence and effects of new and old forms of illumination during the period, and evaluating their worth within culture and society, before examining their presence within literature.

The Tlatelolco Massacre, Mexico 1968, and the Emotional Triangle of Anger, Grief and Shame

Discourses of Truth(s)

Victoria Carpenter

‘The 2 October 1968 massacre in Tlatelolco (the Plaza de la Tres Culturas) was a loss of innocence for the Mexican national imaginary. The sustained act of state terrorism shattered forever the myth of a benevolent socially and culturally stable society. Mexico has been coming to terms ever since with the aftermath of that event. Cultural and literary histories have generally adhered to versions provided by anti-establishment sources. The enormous value of Carpenter’s examination of pertinent textual production is the careful attention paid to the voices of the defenders of the State, with the result that she has provided a far more nuanced account than we are used to studying.’
- Professor David William Foster, Arizona State University

- Emeritus Professor Wayne Harbert, Cornell University
