In Celtic Politics, Kurt Jefferson fills in an important gap in academic treatments of politics in what some have called, "the Celtic fringe."...Those lucky enough to teach more specialized courses (e.g., British Politics, Regional Politics, etc.) should place this book on their review lists...All readers will enjoy the vignettes that Jefferson places throughout the chapters, which provide details about fascinating subjects and will spur contemplation of (and class discussions about) the political importance of key historical and cultural dynamics and events. British Politics Group Newsletter Jefferson does justice to the separate histories of each 'nation' while providing a coherent theme for students. As a teaching tool for North American students this is an excellent and detailed introduction to the topic of Celtic politics, with much to interest the general reader as well. North American Journal of Welsh Studies
