With the publication of this volume, Richard Burton’s surviving diaries appear for the first time in their entirety. They have been edited expertly and economically by Chris Williams, a professor of Welsh history at Swansea University and former director of the Richard Burton Centre for the Study of Wales. Burton emerges in these pages as a charming, complex, smart, serious, ardent, and depressed man.
