The last few years have wrought such a change in the conditions of life and study at the University that a new treatment has become absolutely necessary. And in this edition the far more satisfactory method has been followed of assigning each subject to a capable and responsible contributor. The changes of the last ten years have been almost revolutionary in their scope and results.

The abolition of restrictions on married Fellows, the freer intercourse between undergraduates and their tutors families, the introduction of the drama, the gradual severance of the official connection between religion and the University, the increase of earnestness and interest in social problems, the greater opportunities afforded for the exhibition of individual tastes, the admission of women to the Examinations, and the many changes in the Examination System - all this has made the life of the Oxford of to-day a very different thing to the life of ten years ago.The most ardent reformer will scarcely assert that these changes have been absolutely beneficial in every case, and the reforms have been vigorously opposed by a large section of the University.

On the other hand, in a time of intellectual activity and unrest, the University was obliged to conform its system to the modem spirit, and a little stirring of the waters is good for the body academic as for the body politic.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
