    Well-being presents a new dynamic view of well-being, one that will be crucial for the way in which we will cope with the 21st century. In emphasising the interplay between social, community and individual well-being, invited experts from a wide range of academic disciplines explore topics that are critical in our understanding of well-being. The book emphasises that well-being is complex and multifaceted; and is both a state and a process. Well-being also takes different forms, which may conflict across groups in society, requiring an overarching settlement. Well-being is intimately intertwined with the physical, cultural and technological environment and requires a global perspective. Interventions to enhance well-being need to recognise diversity and socio-economic inequalities in society, and to be concerned with the unintended as well as the intended consequences of action. The book will be important for researchers, educators, policy makers, politicians, and others interested in the crucial issue of well-being.
