Product Overview

This handbook addresses the history, organization and central debates in the field of leisure studies. More than thirty chapters from leading international scholars are presented in five clearly defined parts. These examine the origins of leisure studies; review and evaluate the contributions and approaches to leisure studies of key social science disciplines; provide a guide to core questions in the organization of leisure that recur in the literature; consider locations and forms of leisure; and consider the key themes that run through debates as the subject has matured in a central part of the social science canon. Critically summing up the achievements of the field and providing an agenda for future debate and research, it offers an invaluable resource for students, scholars and lecturers.
