The environment and social behavior : privacy, personal space, territory, crowding by Irwin Altman( Book )

13 editions published between 1975 and 1981 in English and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents an analysis of the concepts of privacy, crowding, territory, and personal space, with regard to human behavior. Intended as an introduction to the environment-and-behavior field for undergraduate and graduate students, as a preliminary guide to research and theory for researchers, and as a model for integrating environmental and social concepts for practitioners, the book contains the following discussions: a brief description of the four central concepts; an analysis of privacy in terms of meaning, conceptions, mechanisms, and dynamics; an examination of personal space as it relates to meaning, theory, research, and special topics; and an analysis of both crowding and territory, again with a focus on research and theory.

Polygamous families in contemporary society by Irwin Altman( Book )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Social psychologist Irwin Altman and anthropologist Joseph Ginat examine husband-wife and wife-wife relationships in contemporary Mormon polygamous families in this intriguing book. Using interviews and observations, they describe how husbands and wives in plural families cope with their complex lifestyle in many facets of everyday life, including courtship, weddings, honeymoons, adjustments to a new life, living arrangements, and the husband's rotation among his wives. Other topics covered are budget and resource management, psychological attachments to homes, and the social and emotional relationships between family members." "This is the first comprehensive analysis of life in present-day Mormon polygamous families in American society. Adopting a transactional and dialectic approach, the authors bring an interdisciplinary perspective to this unique form of family structure in modern society."--Jacket

Women and the environment by Irwin Altman( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As society changes - due to (among other factors) political upheaval, racial tension, economic stress, and the rise of cultural subgroups - the changing roles of women in the public and private sectors are uniquely challenged by constraints and public policies regarding the physical environments in which women live and work. Women and the Environment illuminates the complex, many-layered relationship between women and a wide range of different physical environments, such as homes, workplaces, neighborhoods, communities, cities, and various public settings. It studies all the significant environments of a woman's life cycle from childhood to late adulthood, addressing such vital subjects as the interplay between women of varying ages, races, economic classes, occupations, communities, educations, and family structures and environments; obstacles and opportunities regarding women's roles in community action and public policymaking; legal and legislative barriers to environmental change, highlighted by successful case examples of women creating positive social change; and the philosophy of design and research issues involving women and environments. Women and the Environment will serve as an invaluable reference for researchers, professionals, and students in environmental psychology, personality and social psychology, gender studies, human ecology, and environmental design and planning
