Overview: This book offers its readers opportunities to expand their consciousness, clarify their values and gain a better understanding of recreation and leisure in their own lives, as well as the lives of others. Written as an introductory textbook for university and college undergraduates, this book examines the critical role which recreation and leisure plays in society.

This edition is significantly expanded, updated, and revised with increased attention on leisure's relation to health and well-being; the social, demographic and economic trends that are reshaping leisure behavior; organizations providing leisure services; and how people use their free time.

Thought-provoking questions and exercises conclude each chapter to help the reader better understand the issues that affect his or her perception of recreation and leisure as well as how recreation and leisure influence his or her own life and the lives of others.
