A history of the development of the University of Exeter over the six decades since it was granted its royal charter.  The book tells the history of the institution and its community.  The author draws on a wide range of resources, from archive 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.

Building on his research from his own book, City on the Hill, produced as a commemorative volume on the Diamond Jubilee of the University in 2015, the text is completely revised, and brought up to date, including new contributions from former students and new material comparing Exeter with its peers, making clear its changing place in the higher education hierarchy.

Includes a Postscript, ‘looking into the future’; with some informed looking-forward, particularly in relation to political change in terms of Europe, finance, new systems of performance metrics, the developing UK and world requirements in Higher Education.

A book that people connected to the institution will genuinely want to read - and a book that historians will want to read too.  With new material provided from an additional interview with Exeter’s Vice-Chancellor, and interviews with other leading University figures.

One of the world’s leading scholars in the field of British history, and the most prolific historian in the UK, author of over 100 books Professor Jeremy Black has held the Established Chair in History at the University of Exeter since 1996.

A graduate of Cambridge, he did research work at Oxford, before going to Durham, eventually as Professor. He has served eight years on the Council of the Royal Historical Society. At Exeter, he has served on Council, Senate and Finance Committee. He is a prolific lecturer and broadcaster, with a website at https://jeremyblackhistorian.wordpress.com.
