n its 175th year, the Universität Stuttgart looks back on the last decades. As earlier anniversaries have prompted the remembrance of the developments in the 19th and 20th century, and the occurrences during the nazi dictatorship, this book focuses on the period after the Second World War. A picture is drawn of a vibrant institution mastering the difficult years directly following the war as well as the boom in the field of education and science during the sixties, and the challenges of the present. Among other topics, the different parts of the book deal with the reconstruction, the denazification, and the change from technical school to university. Apart from that, the process of establishing a modern constitution for the university, and the recent developments concerning equalization are depicted. The buildings of the university are described as representing different periods in the history of architecture from the middle of the last century up to now.

More than fifty biographies of scientists who worked in Stuttgart provide an insight into the history of the various sciences. Among these are the biographies of the political scientist and historian Golo Mann, the specialists in German studies Käte Hamburger and Fritz Martini, and of the pioneer of astronautics Eugen Sänger, the inventor of nylon Paul Schlack, and the civil engineer Fritz Leonhardt, who built many bridges and television towers in the whole world. Thus the book presents the work of many personalities connected with the Universität Stuttgart, and shows the impact of social, political, and science related preconditions under which the university has evolved during the last six decades.
