This book is both a sequel to and expansion of Community Psychology, published in 1992. It serves as a textbook for courses on community psychology but now also includes material on inequality and health, since both are concerned with the way an individual's social setting and the systems with which they interact affect their problems and the solutions they devise. Part 1 sets the scene by locating community psychology in its historical and contemporary context. In Part 2, disempowered groups and their physical and mental health are considered. Finally in Part 3 the application of community psychology is discussed, and the ways in which marginalised people can be helped by strengthening their communities highlighted.

The papers presented at the symposium were arranged in 6 major sessions and 4 keynote address sessions. The session on transportation of agricultural commodities for international trade found that published research in this area was limited and largely theoretical in nature. Papers in the session on the impacts of transportation regulation on agriculture dealt mostly with trucking. It was found that good trucking performance has resulted from the hauling of agricultural commodities which are exempt. The impacts of transportation regulation on agriculture was covered and it was suggested that the economies of size in trucking and quality and cost of trucking services provided by both exempt and regulated truckers, need to be researched. Extensive research on the relationships among people, commodity and service transport systems and the potential for rural development were lacking. Research papers in the session on the economies of freight transportation in low density rural areas, provided a full coverage of this area, from the measurement of the potential extent of the excess rail line capacity problem to the presentation of suggested methods on how capacity adjustment impacts may be estimated. Analyses of changes in the energy situation suggest an adverse income effect on rural people from increased fuel prices. The adequacy of research in transportation problems affecting agriculture and rural areas was also discussed.
