Encapsulating the work of the UCLA History Project over eight years, UCLA: The First Century is a 360-page full-colour definitive history combining a lively narrative style and dynamic Bruin tales, lavishly illustrated with over 900 images.

UCLA’s ascent from a small two-year branch of the University of California on the grounds of a normal school to an internationally renowned research university is one of the most remarkable success stories in American higher education. Author Marina Dundjerski has masterfully woven together a century of socio-political events into a rich chronicle of the people who forged a dream to build Southern California’s premier institute of higher learning.
