5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Eleanor TOP 500 REVIEWER on 5 Jun. 2014
Format: Paperback
In February 1971 students staged a sit-in in the registry offices of Warwick University. Whilst there they came across files which detailed political surveillance of staff and students and revealed a worryingly close relationship between the university administration and local industries.

The revelations in the files turned what was a localized protest into a national incident and had repercussions not just for the university, but also for the labour movement and press freedom. "Warwick University Ltd." is an account of this affair and its implications, produced in just two weeks and published while events were still unfolding. E. P. Thomson, a lecturer at the university, was the person to whom the students first turned on finding the files and it is he who edits the volume.

"Warwick University Ltd." gives a fascinating insight into the early years of Warwick University, showing how academics and students were controlled by and subordinate to powerful and secretive commercial interests. Many of the documents reproduced here will make the reader's blood boil and the book's themes are just as relevant to the present climate.

"Warwick University Ltd." has been out of print for many years, so Spokesman Books are to be congratulated for this new edition. It comes with a new introduction from Hugo Radice (who was involved in the protest and helped edit the book first time round) as well as reminiscences from students about life at Warwick during that period.
