Jane Williams (Ysgafell)

Gwyneth Tyson Roberts

‘Ysgafell has at last been granted what she deserves in this finely detailed and highly readable critical biography, which rescues from oblivion an accomplished and versatile writer, and rediscovers for a new generation of readers a markedly intelligent and unconventional Welsh Victorian.’
- Emerita Professor Jane Aaron, University of South Wales

Kant and the Theory and Practice of International Right

Georg Cavallar

‘When the first edition of this book came out just over two decades ago it quickly became a must-read for anyone who was interested in Kant’s ideas about the theory and practice of international relations. This new edition brings it up to date, and adds material that will make it a necessary reference in the decades to come.’
- Professor John Christian Laursen, University of California, Riverside

Hester Lynch Thrale Piozzi

Michael John Franklin

‘This is an eminently readable compact biography of a particularly colourful late eighteenth-century personality. Each of the various phases of Hester Salusbury/Thrale/Piozzi’s life is presented in detail, with full academic citations and a sustained attempt at providing the social and historical contexts of her changing times. As such, the book constitutes a welcome addition to the Writers of Wales series, and one which is likely to prove a useful resource for students and interested lay readers alike.’
Emeritus Professor Jane Aaron, University of South Wales
