This is the first history of the LSE, one of the most famous academic institutions in the world. Ralf Dahrendorf, a former Director of the School, provides a comprehensive account of its first century, enlivened by his own personal insights. The story of the individuals who played a role in the LSE's history is interwoven with the development of the social sciences in the twentieth century and an assessment of the LSE's world-wide links and influence.

Ralf Dahrendorf (Lord Dahrendorf) is a former Director of the LSE and now Warden of St Antony's College, Oxford. He is the author of over 40 books, including Class and Conflict in Industrial Society (1959), and The Modern Social Conflict (1988)

Review:


"There is an impressive quantity of scholarship; a truly vast number of relevant facts amassed."--Times Literary Supplement


"His enthusiasm for the institution is obvious in this very enjoyable centenary history, but he is always judicious."--Financial Times


"A highly readable history of one of the premier social science institutions in the world....This is narrative educational history at its best. The book is well written, with excellent and well-chosen photographs. Yet it is no sanitized history. Dahrendorf treats the inner tensions and controversies with directness and clarity."--Choice


"Dahrendorf and his research team are to be congratulated for producing a centennial history that is also a major scholarly contribution."--American Historical Review


"Dahrendorf has written a warm, generous, affectionate, and personal history of LSE."--The Albion
