'Cornish Studies is now a well established and highly regarded series. It inevitably focuses on Cornwall but adds an additional intellectual perspective which few local or regional journal publications possess by adopting fascinating interdisciplinary and comparative approaches to many of the themes which are considered. This lends a freshness and vitality.' Professor Thomas M Devine, Director, Research Institute of Irish and Scottish Studies, University of Aberdeen 'Cornish Studies provides a fresh, accessible and illuminating insight into the many-sided history and culture of Cornwall. The interdisciplinary and comparative approach encouraged by the editor, Philip Payton, has proved particularly rewarding and has deepened our understanding of Celtic societies in general.' Professor Geraint II. Jenkins, Director of the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies, University of Wales Aberystwyth 'Cornish Studies is a wide-ranging and stimulating series. The topics which it covers relate primarily to the development of Cornish culture and society, past and present, but they are often of relevance far beyond Cornwall. It is meticulously edited to a very high standard, and beautifully produced. Its contents and format make it a most attractive and useful contribution to knowledge, accessible to the general reader as well as to the academic.' Donald E. Meek, Professor of Celtic, University of Aberdeen

Philip Payton is Professor of Cornish and Australian Studies in the University of Exeter and Director of the Institute of Cornish Studies at the University’s Cornwall campus.
