Explores why contemporary Anglo-American society is obsessed with happiness.
Striving to be happy is now a morally imperative pursuit.
Through the lens of novel social theory, this book explicates how this has transpired as consequence of a complex 'conspiracy of coordination' between political, organisational and psychological developments.
