A History of Harrow School 1324-1991

Christopher Tyerman

This is the first modern history of one of the most famous schools in the English-speaking world. It takes an even-handed approach, covering the schools failings as well as its successes. It includes frank discussions of Harrow's financial, educational, and sexual scandals along with a survey of its many great moments as the school of Byron, Churchill (and six other prime ministers), and Nehru.
