Professor L.W.B. Brockliss is a historian of education, science and medicine, with a particular interest in early-modern France and England. His new book, The History of Oxford University, gives a complete history of the university, from its beginnings in the eleventh century to the present day. Written by one of the leading authorities on the history of universities internationally, it traces Oxford's improbable rise from provincial backwater to one of the world's leading centres of research and teaching.
