The intertwined stories of the great English 'Varsity' universities have many colourful aspects in common, yet each also boasts elements of true distinctiveness. So while the histories of Oxford and Cambridge are both characterised by seething town and gown rivalries, doctrinal conflicts and heretical outbursts, shifts of political and religious allegiance and gripping stories of individual heroism and defiance, they are also narratives of difference and distinctiveness. G R Evans explores the remarkable and unique contribution that Cambridge University has made to society and culture, both in Britain and right across the globe, and will subsequently publish her history of Oxford University to complete a major new history of the two universities. Ranging across 800 years of vivid history, packed with incident, Evans here explores great thinkers such as John Duns Scotus - the 13th century Franciscan Friar who gave his name his name to 'dunces' - and celebrates the extraordinary molecular breakthroughs of Watson and Crick in the 20th century. Moving from the radical new thinking of the Cambridge Platonists and the brilliant scientific discoveries of Isaac Newton to the discovery of the Double Helix and the notorious 'Garden House Hotel Riot' of 1970, the book is published to co-incide with the 800th anniversary of the University's foundation in 1209. The first short history of its kind, it will be a lasting and treasured resource for all Cambridge alumni/ae.

This volume describes the structure, constitution and curricula of the University of Cambridge and the part it played in the political life of Britain. For most of this period the University functioned largely as a seminary for the Church of England, and much attention is paid to the religious views of its members. The careers and intellectual achievements of some leading scholars are described in detail, while undergraduate life--social, sporting and academic--is examined through individual case studies. Special attention is paid to the movement to reform and modernize the University in the period 1830-70.

Der Laubacher Justizinspektor Friedrich Kellner wollte der Nachwelt ein Zeugnis ablegen von der gedankenlosen Unterwürfigkeit seiner Zeitgenossen und den hohlen nationalsozialistischen Propagandaphrasen. Von 1939 bis 1945 schrieb er beinahe täglich seine Kritik am NS-Regime nieder und dokumentierte die vielen kleinen und großen Verbrechen der NS-Diktatur. Diese Tagebücher zeigen, dass jeder in der Lage gewesen wäre, die nationalsozialistische Rhetorik zu entlarven und von den Gräueltaten des "Dritten Reiches" zu wissen. Kellners akribische Analyse der Tagespresse, die zusammen mit zahlreichen eingeklebten Zeitungsausschnitten einen Großteil der Tagebücher einnimmt, macht diesen Text zu einer einzigartigen Quelle, die eine neue Sicht auf den Alltag im "Dritten Reich" ermöglicht. Darin unterzieht er die gleichgeschalteten Meldungen einer schonungslosen Kritik und verdeutlicht, wie offensichtlich die Lügen der NS-Presse waren. In der Verbindung von Zeitungsausschnitt und Kommentar findet Friedrich Kellner eine Methode, die seine Tagebücher neben die Aufzeichnungen Victor Klemperers stellt.

A generation or so ago, the Inklings - C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and Charles Williams - met regularly in an Oxford pub to encourage one another in the writing of fictions set in fantasy worlds... Philip Pullman's Gyptians live on an Oxford canal and it is from Oxford that his characters gain entry to another world... It is true that Oxford is a world to itself, a village where everyone stops in the Broad or the High to exchange local gossip... The visitor walking among the golden colleges may still see students setting off for examinations dressed in black and white... But encounters in the street are as likely to grapplings with politics (local, national and international) as exchanges about a point of scholarly detail... The 'reality' of Oxford is that it is not at all a land of faery.'

Covering three centuries of unprecedented demographic and economic changes, this textbook is an authoritative and comprehensive view of the shaping of Irish society, at home and abroad, from the famine of 1740 to the present day. The first major work on the history of modern Ireland to adopt a social history perspective, it focuses on the experiences and agency of Irish men, women and children, Catholics and Protestants, and in the North, South and the diaspora. An international team of leading scholars survey key changes in population, the economy, occupations, property ownership, class and migration, and also consider the interaction of the individual and the state through welfare, education, crime and policing. Drawing on a wide range of disciplinary approaches and consistently setting Irish developments in a wider European and global context, this is an invaluable resource for courses on modern Irish history and Irish studies.
