Winner of the Adult Non-Fiction section of the Holyer an GofAwards 2006, and Overall Winner of the Holyer an Gof Trophy, this gripping biographical study, published here for the first time in paperback, explores the immensely complicated relationship that existed between A.L. Rowse and his native Cornwall. Rowse’s books, A Cornish Childhood and Tudor Cornwall, remain in strong demand, essential reading for the general reader and historian alike, and for all those who know and love Cornwall. By shedding new light on this complex character, Payton invites a greater understanding of the broader issues of Cornish identity as well as assessing Rowse’s highly original contribution to the writing of British and Cornish history.

About the Author:

Philip Payton is professor emeritus of Cornish and Australian studies at the University of Exeter and professor of history at Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia. He is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and the former director of the Institute of Cornish Studies at the University of Exeter. He also edited Cornish Studies.

Review:

`...this proved to be a very balanced evaluation and explanation of Rowse's relationship with his native people and place.' `This is an excellent biography which is highly readable and well worth the effort. It does throw new light on the man and his place amongst Cornish letters and, despite all the negatives and contradictions, recognises Rowse's claim to be, if not necessarily the greatest, certainly a very great Cornishman.' (Cornwall Association of Local Historians Journal, No 50, Autumn 2005) `This extremely readable book attempts to set the record straight about one of Cornwall's most famous sons. (...) Among the new material that Professor Payton has unearthed in the Rowse archive at Exeter University there is much on Rowse's contribution to the study of local history and Cornish nationalism.' `Payton has achieved an enviable synthesis and fusion in this sympathetic but fair biography of a paradoxical patriot.' (The Local Historian, Volume 35, No 4, November 2005) `It looks beyond the conventional four nations at all the groups in our islands, and focuses on local history and what was hidden from many national historians. His chapter `All the Island Peoples' is particularly interesting in analyzing the latest positions on this approach, with appropriate side-glances to Rowse and to Cornwall.' `This is really a stimulating book which ranges far beyond what might be taken as a restrictive title.' (History Today, February 2008) `This comprehensive exploration of Rowse's life is a must for any bookshelf dedicated to Cornish culture.' (Cornwall Today, February 2008)
