Revolution to devolution

To be published next month, Revolution to Devolution: Reflections on Welsh Democracy is an integrated range of studies, focusing on Wales, on the advance of democracy and the evolving idea of national identity in modern Britain.

The author, K. O. Morgan, currently a Research Professor at King's College, London, is a long-established, internationally-recognised academic authority and member of the House of Lords.

Looking back to the impact of change in Europe and the wider world from the 1789 revolution in France onwards, this book covers key personalities such as Lloyd George, the impact of the First World War in Wales, and relates to contemporary debates on Scottish independence and the connections with Europe. It opens up wider issues of open government, foreign policy, the rule of law and cultural diversity.

A Fellow of the British Academy, and a member of the House of Lords since 2000, Lord Morgan is also an Honourable Fellow of The Queen's College, Oxford, and of Oriel College, Oxford, and a Fellow of the Universities of Swansea, Cardiff, and Glamorgan. He has also held the positions of Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, and Senior Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wales.

The book will be officially launched on the 1st October at an event held in King’s College, London. For more information, please contact c.harries@press.wales.ac.uk
