About the Product

"This dictionary offers a unique contribution to the field. It covers a broad range of concepts and theories, enabling students to easily access definitions of key terms as well as introducing them to a range of contemporary ideas about Leisure. In doing so, it provides a valuable reference point for students, and can be used to signpost further relevant reading" - Dr Fiona Jordan, School of the Built and Natural Environment, University of the West of England, Bristol. What is Leisure Studies? Who are the key figures in the field? How can we evaluate the relevance of concepts in the field? This is the first full length dictionary of Leisure Studies. It examines the key concepts, assesses the work of central figures, and helps students zero-in on essential issues and conceptual distinctions. Written by teachers experienced with the needs of undergraduate and graduate students in the field, the book will be quickly recognized as a vital asset in making sense of Leisure Studies.
