This book serves as a complement to traditional neoclassical economic and public policy literature. The presentation and analysis are useful guides for anyone interested in the relationship between reality and perception, relevant to development and public policy. The book eschews reliance on traditional indicators of quality of life and instead asks Latin Americans, through opinion polls, about their perception of their quality of life. The authors use regional, national, and international data to add both breadth and depth to their analysis. The book combines sociology, politics, culture, public opinion analysis, and economics to explain quality of life and issues surrounding it in an accessible, interesting manner.
