The Phoenix Rises

The Phoenix Rises describes the origins and development of the University and its antecendents, taking the story of university and city through the devastation of the war years and the economic upturn thereafter, right up to the present day. This beautiful hardback portrait treats a wide range of themes including key academic disciplines, links to regional industry through excellence in design and engineering, the relationship with the city and its cathedrals, and the student experience down the years, told through recollections and archival contributions. With the creation of a new Cultural Quarter linking the University, the Cathedral and the medieval centre, along with the successful development of the Technology Centre, Coventry University has entered a new phase of partnership with its city.
