This book presents original happiness research from and about a region that shows unexpectedly high levels of happiness. Even when Latin American countries cannot be classified as high-income countries their population do enjoy, on average, high happiness levels. The book draws attention to some important factors that contribute to the happiness of people, such as: relational values, human relations, solidarity networks, the role of the family, and the availability and gratifying using of leisure time. In a world where happiness is acquiring greater relevance as a final social and personal aim both the academic community and the social-actors and policy-makers community would benefit from Happiness Research in Latin America.

"This Handbook is truly a comprehensive compilation of stand-alone chapters that cover multidisciplinary well-being research in Latin America, including original research and a few overall summaries and consideration of the implications of the data. ... it is intended for academics from various disciplines interested in Latin America or focused on international comparisons. ... the Handbook is comprehensive, exhaustive, and designed to promote international knowledge and collaboration. It is an indispensable addition to the library of any researcher in the field." (Alejandra Suarez, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 61 (15), April, 2016)
