Future of Work and Leisure by John T. Haworth Future of Work and Leisure, Paperback (January 2005)

Globalization, economic development and changes in social environments have put the relationships between work, leisure, social structure and quality of life under the spotlight. This book brings together chapters from international experts in a range of disciplines concerned with work, leisure and well-being to discuss key, topical issues.

Work, Leisure and Well Being by John T. Haworth Work, Leisure and Well Being, Paperback (February 1997)

It is established that unemployment is detrimental to health and well being, and most of us assume that a rewarding leisure activity would be preferable to paid work. John Haworth challenges these assumptions and aims to show that the very constriction of work is often the most rewarding.
