Excerpt

For their support and encouragement in preparing this book I am grateful to Basil Bernstein and Brian Davies. They have both read and commented on draft versions. Sara Delamont has, as always, been the perfect supporter, colleague and critic. Deirdre Burton offered words of wisdom when they were most needed. If I have not always acted on the advice offered, that reflects my stubborn nature, not a lack of gratitude.

In preparing this book I have consulted a large number of sources, only a fraction of which appear in the text: the bibliographical work would not have been possible without the aid of a personal grant from the British Academy and the help of colleagues in the library at University College, Cardiff. In particular I should like to thank Hilary Calwell, Tom Dawkes, Andrew Green, Thelma Probert, Nancy Smith and Nick Smith.

Martin Read provided invaluable support in the preparation of various drafts of this book.

Finally, my thanks to all at Berni’s for keeping body and soul together.
