Reviews

'This book brings to life the people, places and personalities of the Cass Business School over its illustrious history. Of equal importance however, is the way it draws out many important and current issues via its analysis and theoretical frameworks, to make it of general interest to all Deans and senior business school staff and for those aspiring to such positions.' - Jonathan Slack, Chief Executive, Association of Business Schools

'In this book, Professor Williams has captured the development of Cass, from our beginnings to the leading institution we are today. Its publication in our 40th anniversary year marks yet another milestone on the School's journey to become one of the world's very top business schools.' - Lord Currie, Dean, Cass Business School
