Overview

This textbook provides a clear and comprehensive introduction to the rapidly expanding field of environmental psychology.

The authors start with a review of the history of environmental psychology, highlighting its interdisciplinary nature.

The book then moves through key contemporary lines of research in the field, contrasting models from perception and cognition, such as those of Gibson and Brunswick, with major social psychological approaches as represented by Lewin, Barker and others. The book concludes with an analysis of the most promising areas of research and practice

Addresses environmental psychology, psychological tradition/ the spatio-physical dimension of behavior/etc.
