An important figure in the history of modern town planning and environmental studies, Sir Patrick Geddes (1854-1932) pioneered a sociological approach to the study of urbanization, an approach centered on the idea that social processes and spatial form are intimately related. Meller (history, U. of Nottingham) does a fine job of making his life and work accessible to a wide audience. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
