The book is a lucid and critical evaluation of events and personalities associated with the institution during this period. The intrigues surrounding the controversy over the cross on the campus; and the machinations of rival groups to foist their will on the university community are impartially highlighted.
the book, written in a distinctive narrative style combining the chronological and thematic approaches, is compulsory reading for educational administrators and university students and staff everywhere.
