This classic study examines the period when Wales struggled to retain its independence and identity in the face of Anglo-Norman conquest and subsequent English rule. Professor Davies explores the nature of power and conflict within native Welsh society as well as the transformation of Wales under the English crown. An account of the last major revolt under Owain Glyn Dwr forms the culmination of this excellent work.

Review:


"Fulfills every expectation. It is deeply researched and lucidly written....Not the least of the strengths of Davies's book is that he also places medieval Wales firmly within the context of British and Irish history and of European history in general. For that reason alone, Davies's book deserves the attention of all specialists in medieval history. For those who are interested specifically in medieval Wales, this book is a work of the first rank."--American Historical Review


"A clear, systematic, and authoritative analysis....[A] work...of impeccable scholarship and synthesis."--Albion


"Davies has complete control over his material, and with bardlike skill narrates the story of the Welsh as they faced and survived the Anglo-Norman invaders in the 11th and 12th centuries ....A vitally important acquisition for British history collections."--Choice


"Narrative history writing at its best--majestic in style, immensely detailed yet never constipated. I cannot see it ever being superseded."--The Sunday Telegraph
