From the Back Cover:

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

Environmental Psychology addresses questions of howenvironments affect humans, what motivates people to actpro-environmentally, and how humans can be encouraged to establishand maintain a sustainable environment. The book discusses bothenvironmental factors that threaten and promote human wellbeing,and elaborates on a wide range of factors influencing actions thataffect environmental conditions, including contextual factors,motivational factors and habits. Furthermore, the book demonstratesways to encourage pro-environmental behaviour including informationstrategies, incentives and persuasive technology, and describesfactors influencing the acceptability of environmentalpolicies.

Environmental Psychology provides an internationalapproach, including non-Western and developing countries, andoffers comprehensive reviews of key research lines in environmentalpsychology.
