About the book and author from the back flap of the dust jacket:
“As a student, Keith Briant, through his editorship, obtained an insight into the many sides of Oxford life, and an opportunity of learning the official views
of the University. In this book he describes Oxford as it is today and indicates how it has changed and is still changing.
He has no axe to grind and no motive for concealing the truth. Openly and fearlessly he discusses the virtues and vices of ‘dons' and their salaries, Rhodes
Scholars and the Oxford Group, the value of undergraduate journalism, the defects of the women's colleges, sex, politics, subsidized education and the breakdown of class distinctions.
He is frank in his attack but constructive In his criticism, telling the story of a great university with a long history which has Its meaning for everyone interested in education.”
