The challenge of affluence : self-control and well-being in the United States and Britain since 1950 by Avner Offer( Book )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Avner Offer argues that a sense of well-being has lagged behind affluence in these societies because they present an environment in which consistent choices are difficult to achieve and in which the capacity for personal and social commitment is undermined by the flow of novelty. His approach draws on economics and social science, makes use of the latest cognitive research, and provides a detailed and reasoned critique of modern consumer society, especially the assumption that freedom of choice necessarily maximizes individual and social well-being."--Jacket

In pursuit of the quality of life( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is wealth the same as happiness? How is the quality of life to be evaluated, measured, and most importantly, achieved? The authors provide provocative and engaging answers to these questions in this new, multidisciplinary and pragmatic approach to an important area of social research. Taking the individual as the point of departure, the authors consider both objective circumstances and their subjective impact on people's lives. Prominent authors from an array of different academic disciplines discuss the quality of life as viewed from their distinctive perspectives: these include the psychology of subjective well-being, destitution and basic needs, the environment, women and the family, illness and health, employment and work, and the role of the state
