Originally published in 1996, "Pastimes" introduced an exciting new text that explored leisure and recreation philosophy and science, the various sub-fields, and the leisure services industry. This edition is the result of what the author has learned from years of engagement with leisure theory, research, and personal and professional practice. You can expect to find: New chapter outlining leisure service delivery systems; New concepts supported by recent research; More illustrations of concepts through field-based cases, biographical features, exploratory activities, and research studies; Additional definitions of terms; Even new and more photographs. Throughout, the author has tried to use the most interesting, relevant, and exciting information and approaches possible. More than a textbook, "Pastimes" clarifies the connection between leisure and being human.
