Overview

John Barnard Jenkins is the enigmatic figure who, during the late 1960s, masterminded the longest and most successful bombing campaign ever waged in the cause of Welsh nationhood. He was caught and sentenced to ten years’ Category A imprisonment, and it was during this period that Wales first glimpsed his exceptional talent as a writer. His prison letters have style, passion and a revolutionary political message that proved as potent as his previous campaign, increasing public awareness of the issues and demand for devolved powers of self-governance – eventually resulting in the creation of a Welsh Assembly and the burgeoning Welsh independence movement. This is a reissue of the original edition from 1981, out of print for many years, published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Investiture of Prince Charles as Prince of Wales.
