Happiness and Place is about places—cities, suburbs and towns—and happiness of people living there. Taking an interdisciplinary, approach, Okulicz-Kozaryn examines the relationship between human happiness and the infrastructure of the places they live in. The work takes the increasing urbanization of the Unites States as its focus, but draws on global examples, discussing the factors that attract people to live in cities and suburbs and the decreasing happiness associated with that lifestyle. Amidst the common pro-urbanism or pro-sub-urbanism, this thought-provoking book argues for the often overlooked idea that we are happiest in smaller areas.
