AnnotationThis book contains the papers from a conference on the issue of quality of life organised by the Institute for Research in the Social Sciences (IRISS), University of York, November 1987. The first part addresses the philosophical basis of the concept of quality of life. Part two focuses on the development of a measure of quality of life than can be used in policy evaluation, looking at issues in the design and construction of such measures and their scope and limitations. In part three, researchers from a number of disciplines draw on empirical research to examine aspects of quality of life in particular settings, both institutional and non-institutional. The final part looks at the interface between quality of life and government policy, focusing on the inter-relationship between individuals and society when resources are constrained. (AKM).
