Covering a fast-expanding application of psychology, Environmental Psychology provides an interdisciplinary approach to the interactions of human psychology and behavior with environmental influences.

A thorough introduction to a field with broad practical appeal, Environmental Psychology cultivates a sound understanding of human reaction to and interactions with increasingly multifaceted environments.
