From the Back Cover:

Whether made up of concrete skyscrapers or ancient redwoods, the environment influences people's lives in many ways; reciprocally, this environment is in many ways a product of human activity. The most up-to-date introductory textbook on its subject, Environmental Psychology: An Introduction provides a valuable overview of the interplay between humans and their varied environments. A response to the growing interest in environmental psychology as a way to promote sustainable environments, this text incorporates the work of over fifty well-known scholars to examine this increasingly important area.

Environmental Psychology addresses questions of how environments affect humans, what motivates people to act pro-environmentally, and how humans can be encouraged to establish and maintain a sustainable environment. The book discusses both environmental factors that threaten and promote human wellbeing, and elaborates on a wide range of factors influencing actions that affect environmental conditions, including contextual factors, motivational factors and habits. Furthermore, the book demonstrates ways to encourage pro-environmental behaviour including information strategies, incentives and persuasive technology, and describes factors influencing the acceptability of environmental policies.

Environmental Psychology provides an international approach, including non-Western and developing countries, and offers comprehensive reviews of key research lines in environmental psychology.
