Wales, the Welsh and the Making of America

University of Wales Press 2021

In Wales, the Welsh, and the Making of America (University of Wales Press, 2021), Vivienne Sanders writes the first systematic attempt to both recount and evaluate the considerable yet undervalued contribution made by Welsh immigrants and their immediate descendants to the development of the United States. Their lives and achievements are set within a narrative outline of American history that emphasizes the Welsh influence upon the colonists’ rejection of British rule, and upon the establishment, expansion and industrialization of the new American nation. This book covers both the famous and the unsung who worked and fought to acquire greater prosperity and freedom for themselves and for their nation.

This interview was conducted by Dr. Miranda Melcher whose doctoral work focused on post-conflict military integration, understanding treaty negotiation and implementation in civil war contexts, with qualitative analysis of the Angolan and Mozambican civil wars.
