Wales is a changing nation, it incorporates peoples of different inheritances, backgrounds and perspectives, all of whom will contribute to shaping the nation's future. A Tolerant Nation? presents the first overview of the past two hundred years of ethnic diversity in Wales and demonstrates the significance of this diversity for understanding contemporary Wales. In addition to providing a historical context for understanding Welsh multiculturalism, the essays collected here also discuss dominant views of ethnic diversity in Wales and the ways in which the Welsh themselves have been conceived of as an ethnic minority, both within and outside Wales. Individual essays reflect on issues such as the literary representation of race, Welsh missionary activities, racial tensions, refugees and asylum seekers in Wales, and the question of equality. A Tolerant Nation? illustrates the significant contribution of ethnic minorities in Wales to the development of Welsh economic, social and cultural life. It offers a revealing insight into the rich diversity of contemporary Wales, and fills a glaring gap in current research on the state of the devolved nation.
