Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1998, Vol 43(10), 713–714. The reviewer notes that the chapters in this book (see record 1997-08936-000) represent excellent examples of state-of-the-art research and theory regarding the psychological dimensions of human-environment interactions. Despite these accomplishments, paradoxically (as Stokols notes) environmental psychology still has a somewhat diffuse nature. The purpose of this book is to change one aspect of environmental psychology's diffuse character. This is to make this subfield better known both within and outside of psychology. The book, as is true of environmental psychology in general, is based on the premise that human-environment interaction problems not only include physical dimensions but include psychological ones as well. Scientific psychology study appropriately applied can make contributions to the solutions of these problems. The book is the product of a conference held at the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
