Review Quotes
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
