Tracing the development of the University of Exeter over the six decades since it was granted its royal charter in 1955, this book tells the history of the institution and its community. Jeremy Black draws on a wide range of resources, from archival material to the personal recollections of staff and students. He records and analyses the story of the university as it engaged with the need to expand and evolve while responding to constant financial and political pressures. The book includes interviews with leading university figures, contributions from former students, and a postscript looking to the future. It charts the University of Exeter's changing place in the world of higher education. from the author's Preface ... 'In 2013-14, I wrote The City on the Hill: A Life of the University of Exeter, which was published in 2015 as part of the university's Diamond Jubilee. That extensively illustrated and very heavy book is a worthy memorial. This is a different book: it draws on some additional research, while the opportunity to rewrite the study, and bring it up to date has proved welcome. The work has been greatly eased by the great friendship and wonderful co-operation I have encountered. Staff and students, past and present, have given much time, to pass on information and opinion, to answer questions, and to read and comment on drafts.'
