The Open University: A History

The Open University: A History, by Daniel Weinbren. Manchester University Press (30 Nov 2014). This historical perspective on The Open University, founded in 1969, frames its ethos (to be open to people, places, methods and ideas) within the traditions of correspondence courses, commercial television, adult education, the post-war social democratic settlement and the Cold War. A fascinating and essential read for every OU enthusiast!
