Fighting the World's Fights: Rhodes Scholars in Oxford and Beyond

£30.00

Product description

Fighting the World’s Fights: Rhodes Scholars in Oxford and Cambridge
Third Millenium Publishing, an imprint of Profile Books Ltd, 2016.
Hardback; 240 x 285 mm. With its dust jacket, the book is still sealed in its protective cellophane wrapper. Unused, it is therefore offered in as new condition.
This richly illustrated book includes text written by many contributors from within the Rhodes community. It combines previously unpublished archive materials and images with specially commissioned photography. The book is in three sections and spans both the past and the present, exploring the reach of the Rhodes Scholarship programme since 1903 and the impact Rhodes Scholars have had across the globe.
The first section includes authored chapters on the history of the Rhodes Trust and Scholarships; the second focuses on Rhodes House and its gardens; and the third features a series of curated essays by Senior Scholars drawn from different eras, backgrounds, and career paths in which they look back on their time in Oxford, consider its impact on their future lives, and reflect on the vision of the Rhodes Trust in the modern world.
The book will therefore appeal to those interested in the history and impact of the Rhodes scholarships.
