This scrupulously researched and entertaining study of women's education at Cambridge is a book for the general reader as well as the specialist. It reveals a sorry tale of academic intrigue and prejudice. Picking her way through the complicated paths of university politics, the author enlivens her story with accounts of the many characters who were caught up in the battle. First published by Gollancz in 1975, this book is now reissued in paperback, with an extended new Introduction by Gillian Sutherland, to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the first formal admission of women to degrees at Cambridge.
