Notes on Contributors
Review Quotes
Máiréad Nic Craith
“Often courageous and always innovative, these new interdisciplinary and comparative approaches to studying Cornwall and the Cornish have allowed Cornish Studies to escape the narrow confines of ’English local history’ to embrace what have been termed the ’new Cornish historiography’ and the ’new Cornish social science’. Nowhere has this been more evident than within the pages of Cornish Studies itself, the series becoming a showcase for the latest and best Cornish work as well as placing consideration of Cornwall and the Cornish very firmly within the wider context of the ’Atlantic Archipelago’.” –Professor Máiréad Nic Craith, Academy for Irish Cultural Heritages, University of Ulster
Geraint H. Jenkins
 “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 H. Jenkins, Director of the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies, University of Wales Aberystwyth
Donald E. Meek
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
