Product description

From Rhondda heroes chasing the American dream to rioters staking a claim in their society. In the Frame is a powerful alternative history of twentieth-century South Wales, offered from the personal viewpoint of cultural historian Dai Smith. Hanes de Cymru yn yr ugeinfed ganrif yw'r gyfrol hon, wedi'i hysgrifennu gan yr hanesydd diwylliannol Dai Smith. Ceir yma ddarlun o fywyd y gymuned, gan gynnwys y bri a'r llwyddiant a ddaeth i ran ei phobl, yn ogystl a'r frwydr gyson i ymladd am hawliau a chydnabyddiaeth. Argraffiad newydd. From Rhondda heroes chasing the American dream to rioters staking a claim in their society In the Frame is a powerful alternative history of twentieth-century South Wales, offered from the personal viewpoint of cultural historian Dai Smith. It takes the reader into a territory - a mythical and veritable Dai Country - formed by the influence of writers and painters, boxers and historians, friends and relatives, rioters and correspondents, critics and photographers. As well as the autobiographical overtones of a Tondypandy childhood and distinguished career, In the Frame contains the far wider undertones of a collective biography. Its mosaic pieces together the consciousness of a society which led its inhabitants in search of fame and fortune as well as the daily struggle for rights and recognition without sympathy or sentimentality.
