"This richly illustrated book introduces readers to the past and present of The University of Auckland. The book tells the story of the growth of the University, from a few students in rented buildings to almost 40,000 students spread across four main campuses today. And the book examines the central features of life at the University in the twenty-first century: the drive for world-class research across the faculties, the diversity of the student body, the strength of creative arts such as painting and literature, and the impact of Auckland staff and students on the life of the nation."--Jacket." ;
