Wales and the British Empire
No matter how much you write, seeing a new essay or book in the print for the first time is always great. Today this volume arrived!
Based on papers given at a symposium at Aberystwyth in September 2007, its a volume containing seven essays examining the many and varied relationships that existed between wales and the expanding British overseas empire between 1650 and 1830.
Part of Manchester University Press' prestigious series 'Studies in Imperialism', its the first ever volume published on this subject. My essay in the collection is entitled:
'Welsh evangelicals, the eighteenth-century British Atlantic world and the creation of a "Christian Republick"'.
