From Our Editors

One of the great thinkers of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, Sir Patrick Geddes enjoyed a career of astonishing diversity. A figure of international importance in the history of modern town planning and environmental studies, he pioneered a sociological approach to the study of urbanization. Central to his beliefs was the intimate linking of spatial form and social processes. His work and passion have become an inspiration to all those who seek to make sense of the city and modern life.

Editorial Reviews

"It is not the first biography of Geddes, but as a work of scholarship it is probably the best."-"Town and Country Planning ." . . rich in detail and perceptive in analysis, unquestionably a work of real scholarship on Geddes which is unlikely to be bettered."-"Planning Perspectives ." . . a masterpiece of intellectual biography . . . if anyone wants to know the full and rich truth about this engaging, protean giant of post-Darwinian intellectual life, they must turn to Helen Meller. After hers, there is no need for further biographies of Geddes."-"History Workshop Journal
