Description - Contemporary Issues in Leisure Sciences by Diana Parry

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Leisure Sciences journal, this book focuses on where it and leisure sciences (as a field) started and what the future might hold for both. The foremost scholars in our field dialogue, debate, critique, and reflect on leisure studies' progress and future. Authors consider and write about the key issues and controversies of the field, developments we should be celebrating, and directions of study we should be pursing. Scholars also consider research gaps that exist in leisure research, issues we should be thinking about, and where we are now in relation to where previous projections expected. Topics in this book include: race, ethnicity, immigration, and leisure; 'risky' leisure research; critical leisure studies; leisure and social isolation; radical leisure; and post-qualitative radical ontology.

The chapters were originally published as a special issue of Leisure Sciences.
