Media Reviews
'This overview of sport in Wales is a valuable and most welcome addition to the 'Pocket Guide' series and succeeds in being both readable and thought-provoking...The strength of the volume is the author's ability to contextualize sport with reference to the political, social, economic and cultural history of Wales...provides a valuable discussion of the role of sport in 'forging a wider popular sense of Welsh nationhood' It is a remarkable and admirable achievement'.
