Simon and Schuster, 1969 - 143 Seiten
R. Buckminster Fuller's Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth, published in 1969, imagines our species as a crew, united by a shared fate, on a tiny spaceship traveling through infinity. It can be read even today as the most intelligent metaphor for thinking about humankind on this planet.
