The London School of Economics and Political Science - the LSE - is one of the most famous academic institutions in the world.

Written by an author who was closely involved as a student and later as Director of the School, it traces the story of the LSE from its `invention' by Beatrice and Sidney Webb, George Bernard Shaw, and Graham Wallas at a breakfast in August 1894, through its foundation in 1895, the travails of its early years, the triumphs of the Beveridge years between the wars, the great expansion of the post-war period, and the changing moods of the succeeding decades, including the `troubles' of

Albion a warm, generous, affectionate, and personal history of LSE

Daily Telegraph t is scrupulously researched, a jungle book of scrumptiously private inside information... - I found LSE compelling reading and often emotionally stirring.

Times Higher Education Supplement Lord Dahrendorf's history is worthy of its subject and does justice to a great international institution...very readable volume

Financial Times His enthusasm for the institution is obvious in this very enjoyable centenary history, but he is always judicious - for example, in his excellent account of "the troubles" in the mid-60's...It has had its ups and downs and Dahrendorf gives a clear chronological account of them.

will be of special interest to political scientists ... Dahrendorf well captures the special spirit of LSE ... Particularly for those of us who were at LSE as students or as teachers, this centenary volume will be cherished as a reminder of an institution that commands peculiar loyalties from those associated with it.

The Times Literary Supplement There is an impressive quantity of scholarship; a truly vast number of relevant facts amassed. There is no padding; the interesting facts jostle each other, all have a legitimate claim on the available space;

The Observer Ralf Dahrendorf strikes gold in his centenary history of the London School of Economics...a compelling story of the building of a 20th-century urban intellectual community.

Sunday Telegraph he epitomises the LSE's internationalism, its prodigious intellectual appetite, its quizzical social democracy, its quest for power through knowledge. He tells an often gripping tale with high intelligence, panache and generosity.

The Hindu the author, having been both student and Director of the School is uniquely qualified to write its history ... There is an impressive quantity of scholarship: A truly vast number of relevant facts amassed. There is no padding; the interesting facts jostle each other, all have a legitimate claim in the available space.

New Statesman and Society splendidly readable history of the school

Contemporary Review the history of the School is lovingly chronicled with empathy and clear intelligence.

Contemporary Review ...the history of the School is lovingly chronicled with empathy and clear intelligence.

John Grigg, Sunday Telegraph should appeal to a large general readership, because it records far more than the collective life of a world-famous institution ... Dahrendorf deals critically and amusingly, though always fairly, with legendary LSE characters

Choice 33:4 a highly readable history of one of the premier social science institutions in the world...This is narrative educational history at its best. The book is well written, with excellent and well-chosen photographs...Must reading for anyone interested in the history of the social sciences.
