The University of Wales, Bangor has a rich and compelling history. The story of this seat of learning from its opening in an eighteenth-century coaching inn in 1884 to a multimillion-pound investment in staff and buildings is one of heroic struggles, personal endeavor, financial crises, and political unrest. Roberts traces the growth and development of the institution, focusing on the personalities that shaped its direction."
