Leisure is a key aspect of modern living. How did our ancestors experience recreation

in the past, and how does this relate to the present? To answer these questions,

Peter Borsay examines the history of leisure in Britain over the past 500 years, analysing

elements of both continuity and change. A History of Leisure - explores a range of pastimes,

from festive culture and music to tourism and sport - emphasises a conceptual and critical

approach, rather than a simple narrative history - covers a range of themes including

economy, state, class, identities, place, space and time - treats the constituent parts of the

British Isles as a fluid and dynamic amalgam of local and national cultures and polities.

Authoritative and engaging, this text challenges conventional views on the history of

leisure and suggests new approaches to the subject. Borsay draws upon the insights

provided by a variety of disciplines alongside that of history - anthropology, the arts,

geography and sociology - to offer an essential guide to this fascinating area of study.

From rodeos to quilting bees, stickball to stock car racing, American pastimes comprise

a broad range of activities. The two-volume "Encyclopedia of Recreation and Leisure in

America provides a comprehensive survey of these activities from the Colonial era to the

present. This new title examines how the pursuit of leisure has changed over time, reflecting

shifting social, cultural, political and economic trends in the United States. Particular attention

is paid to how leisure activities have varied by region, class, ethnicity, gender and age.

Such information fuels history class discussions and assignments as the curriculum increasingly

requires students to understand not only the milestones of political and military history, but also

how people lived day to day. From entries on specific types of leisure activities to discussions of

important themes in the history of leisure, the "Encyclopedia provides a unique window into this

key component of American social history.

The obvious audience for this book is professionals, scholars, and students in the

recreation field. However, many of these entries relate to other fields of interest. . . .

This work should find a place in academic libraries supporting curricula in recreation

and related leisure studies. Reference Books Bulletin The vocabulary and major concepts

of the new field of recreation and leisure studies are just developing and this dictionary

is the first major attempt to describe and systematize those concepts. Although university

departments devoted to the study of recreation and leisure have been in existence for over

half a century, there has never been a comprehensive dictionary written for the field.

The concepts included in the dictionary may be grouped into four general categories.

Each definition is organized chronologically, emphasizing the evolution of the term and

Skiing is one of the oldest modes of transportation known, predating the wheel with

dated artifacts to prove its pedigree. Skiing for sport, however, did not become common

until about 150 years ago. The first Winter Olympic Games, held in Chamonix, France

in 1924, were the first to introduce skiing as a competition. Events were held in both

ski jumping and cross-country skiing. With advances in technology and increased

leisure time, the popularity of skiing as a sport has risen exponentially since it was first

introduced. The Historical Dictionary of Skiing relates the history of the sport through

a comprehensive alphabetical dictionary with detailed, cross-referenced entries on key

figures, places, competitions, and governing bodies within the sport.

Author E. John B. Allen introduces the reader to the history of skiing through a detailed

chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes and an extensive bibliography. This book

is an excellent access point for researchers, students, and anyone interested in the history

of skiing.

While the earliest evidence of organized running can be traced back to Egypt in 3800 BCE,

the modern sport of track and field evolved from rural games and church and folk festivals,

and rules were drawn up in the final quarter of the 19th century in those advanced societies

where enough people had the leisure time to indulge their fancies. Today, in addition to the

running events, track and field includes such events as the high jump, pole vault, long jump,

shot, discus, javelin, hammer, and decathlon. The Historical Dictionary of Track and Field

covers the history of this sport through a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes,

and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 500 cross-referenced entries

on key figures, places, competitions, and governing bodies within the sport. This book is an

excellent access point for researchers, students, and anyone wanting to know more about the

history of track and field.

Praise for the previous edition: 'To write a good textbook is only possible with pedagogic sensitivity,

significant educational experiences, and research practice. This book is evidence that the editors

possess all three qualifications. A student-friendly publication introducing plenty of examples and

case studies (and) encouraging students to acquire the skills needed... this book (is) a winner.'

Annals of Tourism Research 39(3), 2012. Describing the fundamental elements of research methods

for leisure, recreation and tourism, this new edition of a popular textbook is updated throughout.

It covers the measurement of variables, sampling, questionnaire design and evaluation methods,

and also a wider discussion of writing proposals, communicating research findings, cross-cultural

research, and the use of new technologies in conducting research. This new edition includes: -

new and expanded material on visual research methods, nonparametric tests and sampling to

encompass growing areas of research interest; - pedagogical features and extra citations to create a

cohesive learning experience for students; and - numerous examples from tourism and recreation

literature in every chapter, tying theory into scenarios students could face in their careers.

Written by internationally renowned researchers in an accessible style, this book introduces both

undergraduate and graduate students to the vital skills they will need to succeed in the leisure,

recreation, tourism and hospitality industries.

This landmark publication brings together some of the most perceptive commentators

of the present moment to explore core ideas and cutting edge developments in the field

of Leisure Studies. It offers important new insights into the dynamics of the transformation

of leisure in contemporary societies, tracing the emergent issues at stake in the discipline

and examining Leisure Studies' fundamental connections with cognate disciplines such as

Sociology, Cultural Studies, History, Sport Studies and Tourism.

This book contains original work from key scholars across the globe, including those working

outside the Leisure Studies mainstream. It showcases the state of the art of contemporary

Leisure Studies, covering key topics and key thinkers from the psychology of leisure to

leisure policy, from Bourdieu to Baudrillard, and suggests that leisure in the 21stcentury

should be understood as centring on a new 'Big Seven' (holidays, drink, drugs, sex,

gambling, TV and shopping). No other book has gone as far in redefining the identity of

the discipline of Leisure Studies, or in suggesting how the substantive ideas of Leisure

Studies need to be rethought. The Routledge Handbook of Leisure Studiesshould therefore

be the intellectual guide of first choice for all scholars, academics, researchers and students

working in this subject area.

Handbook on the Economics of Leisure by Samuel Cameron (Editor)


ISBN: 0857930567

Publication Date: 2011-11-30

This interdisciplinary Handbook combines both mainstream and heterodox economics to

assess the nature, scope and importance of leisure activities. Surprisingly, the field of leisure

economics is not, thus far, a particularly integrated or coherent one. In this Handbook a

wide ranging body of international scholars get to grips with the core issues, taking in the

traditional income/leisure choice model of textbook microeconomics and Becker's allocation

of time model along the way. They expertly apply economics to some usually neglected topics,

such as boredom and sleeping, work-life balance, dating, tourism, health and fitness, sport,

video games, social networking, music festivals and sex. Contributions from further afield by

Veblen, Sctivosky and Bourdieu also feature prominently. Applying a mix of both theoretical

and empirical data, undergraduate students in modules on sport/leisure economics as well as

sport/leisure management will find this important resource invaluable.

 The Oxford Handbook of Music Making and Leisure

by Roger Mantie (Editor); Gareth Dylan Smith (Editor)


ISBN: 9780190244705

Publication Date: 2017-01-02

 

From a broad range of perspectives and approaches, this handbook explores avocational involvement

with music as an integral part of the human condition. The chapters in The Oxford Handbook of Music

Making and Leisure present myriad ways for reconsidering and refocusing attention back on the rich,

exciting, and emotionally charged waysin which people of all ages make time for making music.

The contexts discussed are broadly Western, including an eclectic variety of voices from scholars

across fields and disciplines, framing complex and multifaceted phenomena that may be helpfully,

enlighteningly, and perhaps provocatively framedas music making and leisure. This volume may be

viewed as an attempt to reclaim music making and leisure as a serious concern for, amongst others,

policy makers, scholars, and educators who perhaps risk eliding some or even most of the ways in

which music - a vital part of human existence - isintegrated into the everyday lives of people.

As such, this handbook looks beyond the obvious, asking readers to consider anew, "What might we

see when we think of music making as leisure?"

Field Guide to Case Study Research in Tourism, Hospitality and Leisure

by Kenneth F. Hyde (Editor); Chris Ryan (Editor); Arch G. Woodside (Editor, Series edited by)


ISBN: 1780527438

Publication Date: 2012-06-26


This field guide provides methods and studies on how-to-do case study research in natural settings.

A truly international guide, this text is ideal for those studying and conducting case study research

in tourism, hospitality and leisure disciplines. It provides a comprehensive and practical account of

how to describe, explain and predict both individual and group case behavior, at the same time

explaining behavior among a set of cases relevant to a specific context. This guide embraces and

extends Herbert Simon's (Nobel Prize in Economics recipient) insight that a decision results from the

conjoining two antecedents in human behavior: cognitive processing of an individual or group and a

given context or problem framing. Divided into six parts, this guide includes chapters on: analysis of

texts; how-to-do executive interviews; field interviewing in international contexts; stakeholder

participatory research; researching indigenous and marginal peoples; and cross-case analysis.

The chapters increase skills and understanding of culture, tourism, and hospitality behavior through

analysis of the four principle objectives of case study research: accomplishing accuracy; achieving

generality; reporting complexity and broad coverage; and achieving impact for improving the

individual condition, client, and/or society.

Historic Hiking Trails by Steve Rajtar


ISBN: 1476602344

Publication Date: 2002-07-01


Approximately 900 hiking trails in the United States take hikers along routes or past sites of historical

importance and offer commemorative embroidered patches or other souvenirs of the outing.

These trails allow hikers to gain a new appreciation for history and actually experience it, instead of

only reading about it--and have something to show for their hike. The first comprehensive guide to

those trails, this work covers routes in all fifty states and the District of Columbia as well as interstate

trails. The book categorizes each as historic, meaning that it played some significant role in history;

historical, meaning that it takes the hiker by or into buildings or sites that have some relationship to a

Prevention of Injuries and Overuse in Sports by Hermann O. Mayr (Editor); Stefano Zaffagnini (Editor)


ISBN: 3662477068

Publication Date: 2015-09-24


This book, published in cooperation with ESSKA, is a comprehensive, evidence-based manual on the

prevention of injuries and overuse in sports that will assist physicians, physiotherapists, and trainers

in providing excellent mental and physical guidance to athletes. The causes of overuse and sports

injuries are carefully analyzed, explaining the medical basis for prevention. In addition, detailed

and tendency to increased risk of injury. The reader is effectively trained in mental and physical

analysis of the athlete and will gain an appreciation of the influence of the athlete's environment on

susceptibility to injury. Gender-specific differences and the specific risks faced by children and

adolescents are identified, and very popular sports such as soccer, alpine skiing, and throwing sports

are discussed in individual chapters. Training schedules of value in the context of particular

physiotherapeutic and medical interventions are described with the help of illustrations and charts.

The authors are team physicians, coaches, sports scientists, training scientists, and physiotherapists

involved in high-performance sports and recreational sports.

Overcoming the Inadequacies of Performance Measurement in Local Government: 
The Case of Libraries and Leisure Services by David N. Ammons


Public Administration Review

Vol. 55, No. 1 (Jan. - Feb., 1995), pp. 37-47 (11 pages)

Published by: Wiley on behalf of the American Society for Public Administration

 

What strategy could boost performance measurement in local government beyond the current level that finds

 most cities predominantly reporting raw workload figures, if they report any performance indicators whatsoever?

The author argues that increased emphasis of relevant performance comparisons-with other local governments and

with appropriate standards-could capture media and citizen attention and thereby prompt greater accountability.

Evidence is presented showing that relevant standards and actual performance figures suitable for comparative

purposes, though hardly plentiful, do exist in selected municipal functions.

Conservation and Recreation in Protected Areas:

Comparative Legal Analysis of Environmental

 

 

 
 

Conflict Resolution in the United States and China by Yun Ma


ISBN: 9781317161882

Publication Date: 2016


This book provides a comprehensive and up to date comparative study of the management and

resolution of conflicts between conservation and recreation in protected areas in the US and China.

Competing claims on the use of nature, Increasing regulation of land use and recreational activities,

and the conflicting goals between conservation and development have led to a rise in conflicts in the

designation and management of protected areas. How to effectively manage and resolve these conflicts

has become a challenge for both legislators and managers. By adopting an institutional dimension in

legal interpretation, this book critically examines how such conflicts are dealt with in the legal regimes

of the US and China while exploring interactions between legislatures, agencies and courts. The book

searches for a plausible solution to improve the legal framework of protected areas in China by

emulating pertinent mechanisms developed in the US, whilst also presenting legal and policy

recommendations to the US. This informative book will be useful for legal scholars in Chinese law,

nature conservation law, administrative law and comparative law.
