About the Author:

Robert A. Stebbins is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Sociology at the University of Calgary, Canada. Among his many publications are Serious Leisure: A Perspective for Our Time, The Idea of Leisure, and Planning Your Time in Retirement. He is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.

Review:

“Stebbins’ new book ... provides timely insight to further the scholarship of leisure, the serious leisure perspective (SLP) and the concept of augmentative play. ... Who should read this book? The book is good for scholars of the SLP. ... the reading will be most meaningful for those who have a grasp of the interrelated concepts of leisure, play, flow, perceived freedom and of course, SLP.” (Steven Henle, Annals of Leisure Research, September, 2016)

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 184 pages. In the scientific studies of play and leisure there has been an unfortunate tendency for the enthusiasts of one to ignore the contributions made by their colleagues in the other. This book shows what the two fields have been missing because of this isolation. The new idea of augmentative play enables us to examine how and where play and leisure are often vitally dependent on each other. Augmentative play is a special activity that aids substantially the pursuit of a larger, encompassing leisure activity. This approach to the study of play is unique. It recognizes the hundreds of activities in which play and leisure come together, sometimes to produce deeply fulfilling experiences and outcomes for participants, other times to produce more fleeting enjoyment for them. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137513014
