This attractively illustrated book is intended to introduce readers of all ages to the fascinating university city of Cambridge. Stephanie Boyd tells the story of the development of both town and gown over the past thousand years, in an accessible narrative that brings to life both the institutions and the individuals associated with this celebrated seat of learning. She looks at the colleges, laboratories and (increasingly) companies that have grown up in Cambridge, and at the individuals (including kings, queens, scientists, architects, poets, and writers) particularly associated with the city. Stephanie Boyd describes how a small town in the English fens, that happened to have a famous university in its midst, has been transformed in recent years into a global centre of the business and educational communities. The Story of Cambridge is intended for tourists and business visitors, city residents (present and future), and students of all kinds.
