This module will enable students to explore the major social, cultural and political changes that have taken place in Wales since the end of the Second World War. At one level it will address the ways in which one region of the United Kingdom was transformed by structural economic change, and how its people responded to that process. At another, it will examine the means by which political and cultural institutions moulded new, and at times contradictory, forms of national identity. Finally, concepts of political representation and leadership will be placed in the context of current historical and sociological writing on modern Wales.
