This book traces the growth and development of the institution.


"David Roberts, registrar of Bangor and a trained historian, has written an admirably lucid, fair-minded account of the one-hundred-twenty-five-year history of his university. It chronicles the major personalities, issues, achievements, and conflicts of these years, with skill, insight and transparent honesty. It deserves a wide readership among everyone concerned with the history of modern Wales."--Kenneth O. Morgan, University of Oxford
