Abstract:

"We drive into a strange neighborhood and roll the windows up. As we talk to a friend, someone passes between us and we feel a surge of terror. In Human Territory, Albert Scheflen and Norman Ashcraft explain some of these reactions. Extensively illustrated with photographs and drawings, this book explores the dimensions of human territoriality and the unconscious rules that govern much of our behavior. We learn the spatial dimensions of why individuals and groups are associated or rejected, and about racial and ethnic communities in urban areas. We see how urbanization itself has distorted territorial rights, and how violations of these rights leads to social unrest, crime and violence. Probing an area largely untouched by social science, Human Territory is a fascinating looks at people, places and time."--Back cover.
