Abstract

The untimely death of Brian Elvins in 2001deprived Cornwall of one of its most active political historians, a scholar the previous decade had contributed enormously to the elucidation of nineteenth-century Cornish politics. Much of his recent work had appeared in Cornish Studies and, as Garry Tredidga suggests elsewhere in this volume, it is almost as if the launch of the new series in 1993 had spurred him to return to the academic interests that he had nurtured more than thirty years before. At any rate, Brian Elvins must be counted as one of those responsible for political studies, and in an edition devoted to a review of the development of Cornish Studies during the last ten years or so it seems appropriate to mark his contribution.
