Description
"If Oxford were not the finest thing in England," wrote Henry James, "the case would be clearer for Cambridge." For almost 800 years the twin capitals of the intellectual life of England have radiated their influence across Britain and the globe—Oxford has spawned more prime ministers, Cambridge more Nobel laureates. And not just political and church leaders, but also the best spies Communism could recruit, the great heretics and reformers, and, God help us, writers, scientists, and scholars of every description. Peter Sager roams through the idyllic gardens and courtyards of William Thackeray's "Oxbridge," uncovering secrets and giving us a unique combination of travel guide, history, biography, and psychoanalysis of two towns that are not merely places but more states of mind.
