This is an ambitious aim mainly because it is intended that understanding will be achieved through holding a semiotic perspective while reading the mainly traditional empirical material. It is also ambitious because the editors do not help or force the understanding to occur by drawing out the pattern in the papers, other than in their short introduction.
The book ends with an overview by Geoffrey Broadbent on 'A semiotic programme for architectural vol 2 no 2 april psychology' which summarizes existing studies and approaches so that one can place the papers chosen in context if one wishes to, but they are not referred to specifically. This is commendable although the book probably relies too heavily on both the reader's ability and commitment to hold both perspectives throughout.
The book is for environmental psychologists, and designers and graduates with a specific interest in the study of meaning in the built environment. It is, however, also generally useful as a collection of papers which may be dipped into by undergraduatextesigners and social scientists as it contains some unpublished material and many papers which were published in scattered and relati- Decision vely inaccessible sources.
Some students may be put off by the price: it is certainly too expensive for the number of irritating errors it contains. Many of the papers were published in the early 70s, although the overview deals with more recent developments and even has a postscript on Guttman's facet theory which is seen as a promising by David Canter and others.
Broadbent however suggests that the pursuit of theory in architectural psychology m a y be misguided and that the aim should be to employ a range of techniques to attempt to understand interrelationships in meaning in the built environment.

The implications of the subject are much wider and have significance in other countries and among other professional groups.
Around the central concept of collective decision making are contributions on: the political business cycle based on an empirical study of government reduction of unemployment before elections ; school tax voting and its relation to property value effects; the functioning of environmental lobbies; the application of laboratory experimental methods to public choice; the construction of decentralized decisionmaking systems aided by computer methods; resource allocation procedures through law courts and supra-national regimes.
These themes are subdivided between an introductory chapter by the editor which examines the scope of public choice theory and a brief statement by J S Coleman on future directions for work. Overall the book is charateristic of United States high academic culture. It provides a technical language economics based for dealing with collective decisions and covers the relevant literature.
