Abstract

There has been a big surge in interest on the subject of happiness in recent years. Psychologists, sociologists, economists, healthcare professionals, educators, philosophers, as well as religious leaders have all joined in the discussion. This, however, is probably the first volume that addresses specifically the questions of whether and how public policy can contribute to the pursuit of happiness at the individual level.
