This accessible introduction to social impact assessment examines the practical and theoretical approaches, methods, and techniques used to uncover the social effects of change. Presenting a clear synthesis of literature scattered across a range of sources, the book considers how SIA may be successfully integrated with other fields of impact assessment, as well as examining its relationship with planning and policy making. Each chapter contains an extensive reference list to promote the reader's further inquiry, and a glossary of terminology can be found at the end of the book. This comprehensive new title is invaluable for those approaching the subject for the first time.
