Desai, Brookings Institution, Shantayanan Devarajan and Jennifer L. Tobin, Georgetown University, Washington, DC, US ‘Aid is important in development for two reasons. First it provides additional resources in finance and knowhow to poor countries which, if well used, could aid their development. The key is of course in “if well used.” Second, the study of aid and its outcomes can shed light on the development process itself, which could help in the design of development policy in general. Both of these dimensions are present in this excellent volume, with contributions from the leaders in the field. It will take its place among the standard reference volumes in development studies.’ – Ravi Kanbur, Cornell University, US Jun 2024 c 458 pp Hardback 978 1 80088 680 3 c £210.00 / c $295.00 eBook • Elgaronline Elgar Handbooks in Development Encyclopedia of Happiness, Quality of Life and Subjective Wellbeing Edited by Hilke Brockmann, Constructor University, Germany and formerly European University Institute, Italy and Roger Fernandez-Urbano, University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg and formerly European University Institute, Italy This comprehensive Encyclopedia delves into the underpinnings, approaches, and recent advancements in the dynamic global landscape of happiness and wellbeing research.
