Oxford: A Cultural and Literary Companion
A new and innovative series offering in-depth cultural, historical and literary guides to the great cities of the world. More than ordinary guidebooks, they introduce the visitor or armchair traveller to each city's unique present-day identity and its links with the past.
Following in the footsteps of historic figures and writers, David Horan reveals the many dimensions, social and cultural, of a city where tradition and modernity interconnect. From the quadrangles and chapels of the university center to the multicultural bustle of the Cowley Road, he explores both the historic and contemporary faces of Oxford.
