A great reference source and "coffee table" addition for anyone connected with UCLA. Well presented and very thorough - highly recommend!

Format: Hardcover
Incredible book - - loads and loads of great photos throughout the years, including photos of how Westwood looked way back at its inception. This is THE BOOK to own if you are a Bruin, or connected to any UCLA Bruins or this amazing university ! I find it interesting that stats show each year UCLA is the most applied to college in the nation...and definitely one of the hardest and most selected schools to get admittance into as well. What amazes me is that now UCLA is as hard (or even a bit harder) to get into than UC Berkeley...and how UCLA was an extension of Berkeley in its earlier days !

This book is a "start to finish" publication on the origins of UCLA from its beginning, with a remarkable array of photographs that really bring the book to life !

2-Thumbs Up !

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Bought this on a whim and send it right back. It's dry and clearly written from a development (fund raising) self-glorification perspective. There are a lot of interesting facts sprinkled here and there but it's built on the archives of pics that the Alumni Association has been leaning on for decades. It's the same information synthesized into one book and it's missing the important part: the student perspective. A book telling the history of UCLA shouldn't be about when buildings were built and awards were won. That's an administrative and political angle. I was hoping it would read like a human narrative and it doesn't. This book is great if you want to know about building projects, accomplishments of faculty and "famous" alums. If you want to read about the UCLA you remember as a student, this isn't your book.
