About the Author
Richard Taylor is Professor of Politics, University of Wales, Swansea.
While Richard Taylor's slim volume is not the first book to be devoted exclusively to it, it is certainly the most interesting...Overall, Taylor has produced an outstanding study, comprehensive in its coverage, accessible in its analysis, fascinating in its historical detail.
