Synopsis: It is now recognized that leisure is much more than whatever free time remains after work. Scholarly publications and popular opinion claim that leisure in industrialized countries is becoming an increasingly crucial component in our daily lives,so much so that society is on the verge of becoming a society of leisure. This book defines leisure as an enjoyable experience that people choose to participate in during their discretionary time, within the context and limitations of culture, socio-economics, and gender. It is a systematic, comprehensive overview of leisure studies from developmental, multidimensional, and cross-cultural perspectives, with an emphasis on Canada.

About the Author: Jarmila Horna is a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Sociology at the University of Calgary She has taught numerous undergraduate and graduate courses in the sociology of leisure and the sociology of families, and is well-known for a series of articles and book chapters about the
interweave of the work, family, and leisure domains, the asymmetrical division of labour and leisure in the family, and the cross-cultural examination of the family and leisure patterns in Canada and Europe.
