This collection of essays by a group of leading authorities is addressed primarily to a nonspecialist readership, with the aim of introducing people and achievements associated with the University of Cambridge over the past 150 years. It explains, in simple terms, what has been done in a wide variety of fields while some who have made important contributions to Cambridge science describe their own work and discoveries. As a whole, the book offers an intellectual portrait of many of modern Cambridge's most notable achievements and will appeal to a broad range of readers within the University and far beyond.
