Review:

Exceptional issue. This publication not only has something for everyone (academics, educators, parents, communities, agencies and players) but the practical and theoretical contributions are timely, informative, and sometimes fundamental. Not since Albert Ellis (1973) have so many models for explaining play's role been represented in one publication.... Readers will not be disappointed in this work. Sluss and Jarrett have compiled a masterpiece, and they should be congratulated for so capably advancing our scholarly interests in play. (Anne Marie Guilmette American Journal of Play, Spring 2009)

The Association for the Study of Play (ASP) is the sponsor of the seventh volume in the Play and Culture Studies Series. The ASP is a professional group of researchers who study play.
