Placing human action and perception at the centre of the subject, this book considers the effects of mankind on the environment, drawing particularly from William Kirk's work on the behavioural environment model. Reviewing Kirk's original model in light of recent ideological debate and extensive new evidence, this collection of essays from leading names in the field shows that a behavioural approach is essential in understanding human geography and man's relationship with the ecological environment.


`The book is a landmark collection of essays on the experience of environment in terms of philosophical orientations, historical outline and new insights for future work…With critique, appraisal and search for applicability the essays are coherently organized around the theme of human life and feelings which would I expect give a strong base for those interested in the basic understanding of human action in an environmental setting.' - National Geography Journal of India
