Tracing the origins and evolution of the Australian National University from its beginnings as an expression of post-war optimism, through the introduction of undergraduate teaching in 1960, to the troubled years following the Dawkins revolution in higher education. On the way it introduces prominent Australians who contributed to the University's making, including Howard Florey, Mark Oliphant, W.K. Hancock, John Crawford, Peter Karmel, J.C. Eccles, Russel Mathews, Beryl Rawson and Manning Clark. The authors explore many issues and trends in higher education, including academic freedom, relations between universities and politicians, the "two cultures", collegial politics and universities in the marketplace.
