The Dean of St Andrew's College oversees an ancient institution (Est. 1561) renowned for its academic oddity, inter-departmental warfare and explosive disasters.The Dean s observations and anecdotes provide an exceptionally witty account of academia in Edinburgh, seamlessly combining the douce realities of Scotland's capital with the decidedly bizarre goings-on at St Andrew's.
The population of Scotland remains rightly proud of St Andrew s College, seeing in its fierce political incorrectness and general eccentricity, a shield against the creeping gloom of the Endarkenment.
Rt Hon. Lord Fanshawe FRS
The Dean s Diaries follow the activities, on and off campus, of the Dean, his Dons and Fellows through the Academic Year. They also correct egregious errors in the press coverage of both the Giant Squid incident and the Antimatter explosion.
