Examines leisure as a significant aspect of human life from the beginnings of free time in prehistory to the present. Discusses historical importance, sociological constructs, political implications, economic impacts, and trends in academic perspective. The authors argue that leisure can only be defined as free time, and not in terms of the activities one engages in or the psychological state one is in during free time. Each chapter begins with a list of objectives, and presents timelines, references, ethical questions, and a glossary in addition to the text. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
