"In the period between the outbreak of World War II in 1939 and the enactment of University apartheid by the Nationalist Government in 1959,, the University of Witwatersrand developed as an "open University", admitting students of all races. This, the second volume of the history of Wits, has as its central theme the process by which Wits became "open," the compromises this process entailed, and the defence the University mounted to preserve its "open" status in the face of the challenge posed by the Nationalist Government." -- front fold over blurb Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.
