About The Book

The final title of a series, this volume traces the history of the federal University of Wales through a period of vast expansion and the inherent problems of such an expansion. It examines the role the University played in the end of the British Grants Commission, as well as the transformation from small, under-funded colleges in 1939, into one of the largest British universities in the 1990s.
