Cambridge University - An 800th Anniversary Portrait by Peter Pagnamenta

Book Description

Edited by Peter Pagnamenta, one of Britain's most distinguished documentary producers, this lavishly illustrated, beautifully designed and produced hardback volume traces the University's growth and development from its small beginnings to today's eminence and tomorrow's aspirations. Cambridge is one of the world's great universities, providing education, scholarship and research at the very highest level. Home to more Nobel laureates than any other institution, it attracts students and academics from across the globe and is internationally regarded as one of the major intellectual powerhouses extending the frontiers of knowledge. The book features expert, informative and entertaining contributions from leading Cambridge figures of every generation and offers a vibrant panorama of the past, present and future of a living community. "Suitably emollient on the whole, though with sharp edges in places, this compendium of low living and high thinking, of student press and Nobel Prizemen ...will enjoy a wide readership." The Times Literary Supplement, 16 December 2009 "Chock-full of images and bursting with contributions from a veritable Who's Who of twentieth-century Cambridge alumni, Pagnamenta's book is entertaining, informative, and up-to-date. Four stars." Varsity, 30 January 2009 Edited by Peter Pagnamenta
