About this product
- DescriptionA collection of vignettes illustrating the brilliance and eccentricities of some of the greatest figures of British university life, this text also explains why the dons matter, and the importance of the role they have played in the shaping of British higher education from the 1700s to the present.
- Author BiographyLord Annan was the first full-time Vice-Chancellor of the University of London, Chairman of the Trustees of the National Gallery, a Trustee of the British Museum and a Director of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. He wrote the Annan report on the future of broadcasting in 1977. He made his name as a historian of ideas with his study of Leslie Stephen, and is perhaps best known for his often-quoted article on 'The Intellectual Aristocracy' and his book about his own generation, Our Age.
