This book is a record of life at the University of Malaya in its early days when separated from its original base in Singapore before independence. The authors, who were students or lecturers at the university in the 1960s, explain what it was like to develop a university with international recognition. Since then, as the preface states, 'the academic culture...was severely eroded and in its place, bureaucracy and patronage took centre stage.' One of the contributors ends his essays with a prescription for restoring excellence in higher education in the country. 176 pages with an index.
