Leisure and Leisure Services in the 21st Century: Toward Mid Century is about change - and some implications of change for leisure and for those who study or work in leisure and leisure services. The concern here is for leisure and leisure services interpreted broadly - leisure being what we do more or less voluntarily and pleasurably within our way of life; leisure services being all those occupations and organizations that deal with leisure behavior - from tourism to therapeutic recreation to parks. The reinvention of leisure is going on right now but, just as fish presumably do not see water, it may be hard for those of us interested in leisure services to see such change. Perhaps these changes can't be seen (or understood) directly, but instead require that professionals and students learn more about what is changing in our environment, our economy, our society, our use of technology, and our values. Given the accelerating change in our world, it seems leisure will be changed for those in both the modern and developing worlds. It would follow that the organizations that serve people providing a broad array of recreation, park, sport, cultural, therapeutic, tourism, hospitality, hotel, restaurant, and other "leisure services" will be, themselves, in a process of change, reinvention, reconceptualization, and adjustment. This book presents 66 discussion topics with Issue Questions and Implications for Leisure to allow the readers to become aware of and investigate trends that could influence leisure and leisure services, and anticipate potential impacts these trends and issues may have in the field of leisure and leisure services.
