Introduction to Recreation and Leisure Services - 8th edition

Introduction to Recreation and Leisure Services (ISBN10: 1892132230; ISBN13: 9781892132239)
ISBN13: 978-1892132239
ISBN10: 1892132230

Summary: Introduction to Recreation and Leisure Services (8th edition) focuses on the growing and changing meanings of recreation and leisure services in communities. This book addresses all sectors of this field, including public, not-for-profit, and private commercial entities. Underlying any recreation service is the mandate to address the meanings of leisure and to examine inclusion and social justice as vital components of the quality of life.

This book is divi
ded into four sections. The first section focuses on leisure and its value. It explores the meanings of leisure and how our understandings have evolved. The second section concentrates on historical and comparative roots of recreation and leisure. Without an understanding of how leisure involvement and recreation services have evolved, we cannot explore what the future might hold. The third section examines the broad range of recreation services, including government, not-for-profit organizations, and market-driven commercial recreation and the impact they have on society. The final section addresses trends and issues. The opportunities for involvement in recreation and leisure, whether as a participant or in a career, create challenges. The ability to confront issues with facts and information and to think critically will be important if recreation and leisure services are to further human development, social change, and environmental justice.

As we begin the twenty-first century, the authors identify the endless opportunities for leisure to serve as a vehicle for social transformation.
