A great introduction to the man and his work. Reprint of 20 chapters from various out-of-print Bucky books.
R. Buckminster Fuller, inventor, thinker, and architect, was one of the best-known Americans of the twentieth century. Often compared to Leonardo Da Vinci and called "the planet's friendly genius," he was inventor of the geodesic dome, the man who coined the term Spaceship Earth, and an educator without parallel. Yet today, most of his books are out of print.
To remedy this situation, his long-term friend and architectural partner, Thomas Zung, has compiled a Bucky Fuller reader. This anthology consists of chapters selected from twenty of Bucky's many books, each with a new introduction by such notables as Arthur C. Clarke, Steve Forbes, Calvin Tomkins, Martin Meyerson, Harold W. Kroto, Valerie Harper, Arthur L. Loeb, E. J. Applewhite, and others.
Altogether this book provides an overview of a remarkable intellectual career and the best possible introduction to the man and his thought. Bucky Fuller was one of the most original thinkers and builders America has ever produced, and this book will introduce his work to a new generation at the beginning of a new millennium.
