Cornish Studies Volume 19 Paperback / softback
Edited by Philip Payton
Part of the Cornish Studies series
The nineteenth 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. The latest volume in this internationally acclaimed paperback series, Cornish Studies: Nineteen examines the Duchy of Cornwall in the medieval period and discusses the Cornish language (including its significance as an icon of contemporary Cornish identity), as well as critically evaluating the early Cornish-language revivalists and analysing the experiences of Cornish women in Cornwall's nineteenth-century `Great Emigration'.
There is also a review of recent books on Californian mining towns in the 1930s and the `Anglican imagination' of John Betjeman.
