About this book

Offering readers the most complete and authoritative critical introduction to Leisure Theory and written by one of the major figures in the field, the book provides an exciting and reliable guide to leisure forms, leisure practice and the representation of leisure. It demonstrates how power relations influence leisure choices and introduces students to the primary functions and regulative mechanisms of leisure, providing a thought provoking account of the central problems confronting students of leisure today. Written with the needs of students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in mind, the book will quickly be recognized as the bible for Leisure Theory.

Reviews

' It is the first book I have read that systematically integrates the study of leisure within the general historical and theoretical framework of the human sciences. As such, it should find its proper place as one of the fundamentals of the study of leisure. Every serious student or faculty member in leisure studies, tourism studies and related fields ( e.g. hospitality) will want to read this book' - Dean MacCannell, University of California, Davis, USA
