OverviewThe twentieth volume in the acclaimed paperback series ...the only county series that can legitimately claim to represent the past and present of a nation. Cornish Studies has consistently - and successfully - sought to investigate and understand the complex nature of Cornish identity, as well as to discuss its implications for society and governance in contemporary Cornwall. Publication of Cornish Studies: Twenty marks two decades of this internationally acclaimed paperback series The volume discusses Cornish medieval and early modern studies, examines the efforts of Cornish language revivalists past and present, and considers the relation between Cornish folk tradition and Cornish identity, as well as evaluating Cornish literature in Cornwall and Australia, investigating the distinctive features of Cornish politics in the first half of the twentieth century, analysing the separation of wives and husbands during Cornwall's 'Great Emigration, and reviewing Cornish mine accidents. "For the past twenty years, Cornish Studies has stood at the very heart of the ongoing scholarly conversation over what it means - and what is has meant - to be Cornish. Interdisciplinary and internationalist in its approach, the series adopts a wide variety of perspectives in order to set the people of Cornwall - and the wider Cornish diaspora - in a truly global context". Mark Stoyle, Professor of History, University of Southampton
