BeschreibungQuestions, hypotheses, and concepts drawn from postcolonial theory are used to understand the culture and politics of postdevolution Wales in these essays. Beginning with discussions of how Wales, as a nation, has been understood historiographically, as well as historically, this analysis focuses on Welsh cultural differences in terms of literature, mass media, music, drama, and the visual arts.
