A great deal has happened at Wadham since Cliff Davies and Jane Garnett produced the first edition of their lively and popular history of the college in 1994. In order to commemerate Wadham's 400th birthday in 2010, the college persuaded Cliff and Jane to produce a fully revised and updated new edition.
The intervening fifteen years had seen a good deal of work done on various aspects of the college's history, and the text was as result thoroughly revised. There is also a substantial new chapter discussing the many and often controversial developments since 1970. The original was notable for its illustrations, but the new edition includes many more.
