Written primarily for a non-specialist audience, these essays describe contributions made by some of the University of Cambridge's most colourful and able characters in a number of academic disciplines. The essays reveal particularly fertile periods of development and chart voyages of discovery which have occurred all over Cambridge, under group or individual leadership. Approaches vary, from the presentation of historically significant discoveries to the explanation of current research--'contributions' in the making.
