About this title


An introductory text that gathers together state of the art information in leisure science and practice, reflecting a wide range of literature from the disciplines of sociology. psychology. economics. political science, and anthropology. More than a text that teaches the foundational meanings and roles of leisure. Pastimes is also a point of view. This text presents leisure as a human phenomenon that is individual and collective, vital for survival, frivolous, historical, contemporary, good, and bad.

About the Author:

Ruth V. Russell, Ph.D. is a professor of recreation at Indiana University in Bloomington. She lectures and writes widely about many subjects, with a current emphasis on the cultural implications of leisure, as well as about leisure as a humanities concept. As a university professor for 25 years she counts as her greatest achievement enabling students to embrace statistics as an important professional tool. For fun, her leisure passions are reading, boating, trekking, and camping.
