Paperback. Condition: Good+. 1974. Pocket Books. 7th Printing.
Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth is a brilliant synthesis of the Fuller system. In this essay, Mr. Fuller traces man's intellectual evolution and copes with some of the great problems we face today. How is humankind to survive? How does automation affect the individual? Where are we to find resources feed the poor? Fuller sees this planet as a complete environment system. He challenges the concepts of specialization, makes a myth of population explosion theory, calls for increased industrialization and systematic use of the computer.
