This is a well-researched and highly-illustrated biography of one of the most influential educational leaders of the 20th century. John Henry Brookes was a driving force in the development of education throughout the city of Oxford. Determined, kind and visionary, his ideas and energy profoundly affected many lives, and Oxford Brookes University was named in his honour. The book describes his early life, the influential thinkers that shaped his views, his arts and crafts career, and his long struggle that led to the Headington campus of what is now the highly-respected Oxford Brookes University. With photography dating form the early years of the 20th century, and beautiful colour reproductions of artwork produced by Brookes, the biography will provide a compelling insight into the life of a man who was determined to change education for young people in Oxford.
