John Jenkins - The Reluctant Revolutionary? - Authorised Biography of the Mastermind Behind the Sixties Welsh Bombing Campaign

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

British Army officer turned leader of Welsh nationalist paramilitary organisation Mudiad Amddiffyn Cymru ('Movement to Defend Wales') and mastermind of their audacious 1960s bombing campaign, John Jenkins is one of the most iconic and intriguing figures of recent Welsh history.In the face of British state exploitation of Wales and her natural resources, MAC targeted government installations throughout Wales in the run-up to the Investiture of the Prince of Wales in 1969. The campaign led to casualties and a ten-year prison sentence for Jenkins, but also to an increased public awareness which set Wales on the path towards devolution.Jenkins has revealed almost nothing about the campaign - until now. Based on a decade of interviews with Jenkins, former police offi cers, MAC members and their families, this sensational authorised biography is not just a study of one man, but an absorbing social history considering the political and cultural background to and impact of MAC's violent campaign.
