This unique collection of essays is the first book to explore the many relationships that developed between Wales and the British overseas empire between 1650 and 1830. Written by leading specialists in the field, the essays explore economic, social, cultural, political, and religious interactions between Wales and the empire. The geographical coverage is very broad, with examinations of the contributions made by Wales to expansion in the Atlantic world, Caribbean, and South Asia. The book explores Welsh influences on the emergence of 'British' imperialism, as well as the impact that the empire had upon the development of Wales itself. The book will be of interest to academic historians, postgraduate students, and undergraduates. It will be indispensable to those interested in the history of Wales, Britain, and the empire, as well as those who wish to compare Welsh imperial experiences with those of the English, Irish, and Scots.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Each of the essays here, including smartly framed analyses by David Ceri Jones on Welsh evangelicals and H.V. Bowen on the relationship between the East India Company and the Welsh economy, contain insights that suggest that further research on Welsh involvement in imperial affairs merits consideration. Indeed, this is the raison d'Aatre of the book, and its skilled contributors suggest the benefits of understanding lesser known aspects of the British Empire." - Peter C. Mancall, University of Southern California, "International Journal of Maritime History Review"
