Seven essays explore the split identity of the English town that is both the site of a major international university and an important trade and car manufacturing center. Among the topics are the effect of the university on the townscape; how the university has affected such aspects of life as political affiliations, welfare, the economy, and middle-class life; and the role of the colleges as landowners. Distributed in the US and Canada by St. Martin's Press. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
