Summary:This pioneering volume for the first time highlights Wales's contribution to the "French Revolution debate" that unfolded in the pamphlet literature of the British isles after 1789. An in-depth essay reviews the Welsh political pamphlets and sermons of the period focusing on the debates between religious Dissenters, Methods and the Church; radicals and loyalists; as well as pacifists and patriotic war supporters. Its second part presents annotated editions of five important Welsh political pamphlets with full translation, thus making them accessible to an English-speaking audience for the first time. Among the illustrations is the first political Welsh-language cartoon.
