The Phenomenon of Welshness

7 Mar 2011

A collection of articles by Siôn Jobbins which first appeared in  Cambria  magazine, entitled  The Phenomenon of Welshness,  has been published by Gwasg Carreg Gwalch.

Siôn Jobbins sometimes walks a tightrope between thought-provoking and provocative. He writes of the 'Blue Books' report in the nineteenth century and their continuing effect; the invention of St Dwynwen's Day; Welsh-language pirate radio in the 1960s; the need for language protests; the changing Welshness of Cardiff and Swansea; the possibility of a new Welsh royal family.
