About the Authors
  • A systematic 1982 presentation of hitherto scattered research on human reactions to five environmental stress factors: noise, heat, air pollution, crowding, and architectural dysfunction. The chapters analyse the concept of psychological stress in terms of its heuristic value in different research paradigms. They show the importance of not only the physical reality but also the individual's perception of it in a diverse array of settings.
