Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm, viii, 198 pp, ills. From the blurb: "Oxford is a unique English town and this study aims to explore the diverse characteristics that have made the town so distinctive. Through a broad-ranging study of Oxford life, the book tackles the question of how university and town have interacted. The authors explore its dual identity as the centre of a major international university and an important economic unit for both trade and car manufacture. Many questions flow from the exploration of this history of both town and university. The authors ask what has been the effect of the university in the townscape; they explore how far political affiliations welfare provision, the economy and middle-class society have been affected by the university. Also the book analyses the significant role of colleges as local landowners. This book provides a wholly original study of Oxford which gets to the heart of the relationship between the university and its urban setting. The study should be important reading for urban historians, specialists in the history of universities and local historians." Near Fine in Near fine dustwrapper. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-31108
