  • The story of the migration of the Cornish people throughout the world is an epic. First and foremost a maritime land, with links to the greater world beyond these islands stretching back into prehistoric times, Cornwall has experienced waves of emigration throughout its long history. The Cornish Overseas details the global impact of the most recent of these waves – the ‘Great Emigration’ that lasted for a little more than a century from 1815 until the First World War and after.

  • Masquerading as a Philosopher - a somewhat deprecatory title, is a thoughtful effort, by a non-professional philosopher, to consider and address many demanding questions. The sections vary considerably in length; some are perhaps fragmentary or provisional, and some are modified, previously published responses appearing in the Magazine Philosophy Now. They reflect where the author has got to with his thinking in attempts to make sense of life, as well as death, and its many conundrums that have preoccupied and continue to puzzle him. Its substance draws on a considerable range of sources that are mainly philosophical. These influenced his thinking previously as a teacher and university lecturer. Currently they continue to inform a more philosophically focused interest on issues that are broader than education.
