Review:

'essential not only because of its attempt to set an agenda for the area of study, but because of the wide ranging, high quality contributions, which can be used in their own right' - Geoff Nichols, Leisure Studies

'should prove invaluable for students as they have to come to terms with complex fields of study...' - Peter Bramham, Sociology
