Hope and Heartbreak is the first in a two-volume social history of modern Wales which will revise 'general' histories of Wales through an engagement with the particularity of everyday life. Using the life experiences of individuals Hope and Heartbreak opens up a hidden world of the people who lived in Wales in the period 1789-1870 and offers a radically different portrait of the lives of the Welsh.
