A vast sweep of time and events in a small book I loved this little book. It carries the reader through the centuries and gives a surprising amount of information about the fair city of Oxford. It is a great gift for anyone wanting to know about Oxford's place in history, whether tourist or town-dweller.

The perfect book for anyone who wants to know more about Oxford and its wider history. The perfect book for anyone who wants to know more about Oxford and its history by a writer who, in his gentle and subtle way, manages to integrate the wider history with that of Oxford itself. There was scarcely a page at which I didn't break into a silent smile of recognition, or re-cognition, about a major historical event or a famous name. or something I should have known but didn't. It's all there: from King Alfred the Great (born nearby in Wantage) and Chaucer's 'Clerk of Oxenford' to the Civil War when Oxford became headquarters to King Charles, the Sheldonian (architect: young Christopher Wren) through to Cardinal (now Saint) John Henry Newman and thence to the original 'Morris Oxford'. As Lord Reith would have said, approvingly: this is a book that, throughout, manages to “educate, inform and entertain”.
