Patrick Geddes : Maker of the Future Paperback / softback


In Edinburgh during the eighties and nineties, Geddes was a truant professor of botany who spent more time cleaning up slums, building cooperative apartment houses, founding student hostels, running summer schools, criticizing universities, and encouraging the arts than he did in the classroom.

He became an expert in botany, sociology, city-planning, reclamation, and economics. Originally published in 1944.
