The vision of two young scientists, Massey University was established in 1928 to bring science to New Zealand's role as Britain's farm. Massey has since become New Zealand's national and a global university, with almost 140,000 alumni spread across 140 different nations. This candid history looks at the university as it weathered war, funding crises, risk-taking expansion and conflict with the government's plans for New Zealand's tertiary sector. Written by distinguished historianProfessor Michael Belgrave, this is a lively look at how an agricultural college grew up to become a leading intellectual centre of excellence.
