Reviews - What do customers think about The Xenophobe's Guide to the Welsh?
So accurate it's uncanny Mar 30, 2002
The Xenophobe's Guide series can be a bit uneven in the quality of its treatment of various peoples, but this is definitely one of their better titles. An accurate and entertaining (and sympathetic) account of the Welsh, their history and life, and why they are not, definitely not, like their neighbours the English.
The Xenophobe's Guide to The Welsh (Xenophobe's Guides). Jun 20, 2000
A short but very witty and extremely well observed overview of Wales, it's people and culture.
Working it's way through religion, sport, social structure (the Welsh Matriarchy), drinking, rugby, and more drinking, it had me laughing out loud with it's insightful observations (although these were not always complimentary, they were all true! ).
Well worth a read if you are Welsh, or if you know somebody who is about to travel to Wales.
