Description - Recreation and the Law by Ms Valerie Collins
For the second edition of this successful book the contents have been fully updated to take into account recent changes in legislation affecting recreational activities, ranging from stadium safety to the new Licensing Act, from the Food Safety Act 1990 to the Local Government Act 1988 and legislation about environmental pollution. The book retains its popular approach of explaining in layman's terms the relevant legal issues. Areas covered include the promotion of recreation as a business, the organization of recreation through clubs and also the problems of violence on the field. As well as offering a valuable insight into the complexities of legal cases and issues and the way in which the law is enforced, it also considers the implications for all those concerned with the operation and management of recreational facilities. Throughout this book the author draws on cases that have been decided in the courts.
This will therefore prove a fundamental source of information for leisure and recreation managers and everyone involved in the planning and administration of recreation in the public and private sectors; it will also be an essential text for students in all areas of sport, leisure and recreation.
