Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The book has been extensively researched, and it is written in an engaging and entertaining style. The authors and publishers can be truly proud of a job well done. It will be of interest not only to past and present students and staff of the School, but to all those with an interest in the history of pharmaceutical education in particular and in the history of pharmacy more generally."--Pharmaceutical Historian, March 2014 "Beautifully presented book at a great price…this book is a joy to read. Not only is it written in a lively and approachable style, but it is attractively designed… I particularly like the book’s attention to chronicling the student experience...Another aspect of the book that impresses me is its detailed account of the long and frustrating struggle for the admission of female students into the school."--PJonline.com, December 4, 2013
