Editorial Reviews

Papers from a recent symposium provide a broad overview of contemporary research and thinking in aviation psychology and human factors. They address concepts of the safety culture as well as the influence of national, organizational, and professional cultures on behavior and training. Contributors come from around the world. Papers are organized in sections on aviation safety, crew resource management, the aircraft cabin, cockpit automation, safety investigation, fatigue and stress, and developmental workshop reports. Specific topics include human factors in advanced technology aircraft, and organizational learning in the aviation business. This is the first of two volumes. Lacks a subject index. The editors are consultants based in Australia. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
