The Environment and Social Behavior: Privacy, Personal Space, Territory, and Crowding.
Altman, Irwin
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.
