Paperback (Out of stock)
£28.99

This is the first book devoted to an oral history of a British university during the 'swinging sixties'. Students, lecturers and support staff are interviewed about teaching and working on campus in the mid-twentieth century. Told in their own words, it is a story of struggle and sacrifice, pride and commitment. It reveals how the modern university transformed lives, how new technologies propelled path-breaking research, and how with new skills its graduates could remodel society.
