Editorial Reviews

An outgrowth of two joint symposia organized in 1990 at the International Congress of Applied Psychology in Kyoto, Japan, this volume deals with research problems of mutual interest to geographers and psychologists, premised on the conviction that the disciplines are to some extent complementary, so that their closer collaboration will have synergistic effects on both disciplines' attempts to find solutions to environmental problems through an increased understanding of the many behavior-environment interfaces. In each case, a psychologist and a geographer contribute chapters on a designated topic allowing for close comparisons of how the disciplines approach the same problem. The volume is divided into two parts: basic processes of behavior-environment interaction, and the real-world contexts of basic processes of behavior-environment interaction. Annotation c.
