Summary
"In the first full-length study of its kind, Laura McAllister portrays the emergence of Plaid Cmyru in the post-War world from its origins as a disparate association of campaigners and activists to its current status of fully-functioning political machine. Skilfully interweaving rigorous historical analysis and interviews with key protagonists, McAllister takes us through the issues and events of a turbulent half century. Much more than a simple retelling of events, this book focuses on the debates and divisions which still mark the party. It shows how Plaid struggles to balance the concerns of its rural, bilingual, traditional heartlands with campaigns for social and economic reforms in the Valleys. McAllister also examines the role of women in the party; looks at its relationships with Westminster and with Brussels; and considers what must be done if Plaid is really to overtake New Labour and become truly The Party of Wales."--BOOK JACKET
