Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth

˹
Simon and Schuster, 1969 - 143 ˹
Writing in 1969 at the height of confusion about social goals and relevance of traditional values, Fuller provides arguments for a rationally designed, holistically tuned to the natural environment, and peaceful, prosperous human future. This is one of the most readable and basic expressions of Fuller's influential and contagious optimism about our ability to redirect values and fulfill human potential.
