Warren Buckland has just submitted his latest monograph Who Wrote Citizen Kane? A Statistical Analysis of Disputed Co-Authorship to Springer, who will publish it later this year. This monograph (partly funded by a Research Excellence Award from Oxford Brookes in 2020) offers a solution to the long-running dispute over the contributions of Orson Welles and Herman J. Mankiewicz to the screenplay of Citizen Kane (1941), one of the most famous films in cinema history. The monograph subjects the language of the screenplay to close scrutiny using statistical methods, and demonstrates the vital importance of statistics to solving previously intractable problems in the arts and humanities. It will be published in the Springer book series ‘Quantitative Methods in the Humanities and Social Sciences’. For more information on the series, follow https://www.springer.com/series/11748
