Widely regarded as the most influential figure in twentieth-century Welsh politics, Gwynfor Evans sadly passed away in 2005. This paperback edition of For the Sake of Wales, published in 2001, contains a new Epilogue in which Gwynfor recalls the years from 1982 to 2001, and gives his views on the new Welsh National Assembly.
