Excerpt from Every Man His Own Art Critic, Glasgow Exhibition, an Introduction to the Study of Pictures This little book, while complete in itself, as befits its immediate purpose, may be also read as a continuation of the writer's "Every Man his Own Art Critic" at the Manchester Exhibition last year The same simple principles of criticism are again stated and applied to the pictures, yet these have been in some measure chosen so as to raise questions not previously discussed.

Patrick Geddes is considered a forefather of the modern urban planning movement. This book studies the various, and even opposing ways, in which Geddes has been interpreted up to this day, providing a new reading of his life, writing and plans. Geddes' scrutiny is presented as a case study for Town Planning as a whole. Tying together for the first time key concepts in cultural geography and colonial urbanism, the book proposes a more vigorous historiography, exposing hidden narratives and past agendas still dominating the disciplinary discourse. Written by a cultural geographer and a town planner, this book offers a rounded, full-length analysis of Geddes' vision and its material manifestation, functioning also as a much needed critical tool to evaluate Modern Town Planning as an academic and practical discipline. The book also includes a long overdue model of his urban theory.
