Rapoport is concerned with the meanings which buildings, their contents, and their inhabitants convey, and the conclusions which can be drawn therefrom for procedures of architectural design to satisfy the people who will ultimately live in these buildings. . . . A challenging book on a subject that has had insufficient attention in the past.Ñu003ciu003eMan and Environmentu003c/iu003eu003cbru003e u003cbru003e "Fills a significant gap: it introduces the notion of environmental meaning so clearly that no reader will doubt the basic premise that the environment holds meaning as part of a cultural system of symbols, and influences our actions and our determinations of social order."Ñu003ciu003eDesign Book Reviewu003c/iu003eu003cbru003e u003cbru003e "This is the second edition of a book first published in 1982. . . . Enthusiastic and inquiring as the reader is brought into the writer's thought processes."Ñu003ciu003eProgress in Human Geographyu003c/iu003e (England)u003cbru003e u003cbru003e "It has merits not to be found in any other book in this much-discussed and little understood subject, to wit: it is short, it is simple, and it is useful. It is even, in parts, entertaining....a book which will help architects to do their job better." Ñu003ciu003eArchitecture Australiau003c/iu003eu003cbru003e u003cbru003e
