I haven't been remembering to post reviews of the book until now. Here are the opening lines of this one:
"Historian Hannah Forsyth has written a substantial account of Australian universities from colonial times to the present day, dealing with the major issues and controversies, and challenging several myths in the process. Moreover, she has done so in a readable and entertaining fashion, which had me pondering how one with such writing skills had crept into the academy."
