Oxford Town and Gown

As the result of a wide-ranging sociological survey carried out by Peter Collison in 1960s Oxford, Oxford Town and Gown investigates the relationship between universities and their local communities, at a pivotal moment when the world depicted by authors like Evelyn Waugh and Thomas Hardy changed forever. Surveys carried out at the same time in York and Reading provide a useful comparison. This book examines political conflict, issues of social class and how local people really viewed the large numbers of students in their midst. Written by Peter Collison. ISBN 978-1-4456-0023-9
