St Antony's College, Oxford, was founded by Antonin Besse and opened its doors in October 1950. Under the leadership of William Deakin, the College became a centre for postgraduate teaching and research in the social sciences. The most deliberately international of all Oxford colleges, it was also the first to admit substantial numbers of women. This book recounts the College's history and describes the changing lifestyle of its students over the last fifty years.
