'This dictionary offers a unique contribution to the field. It covers a broad range of concepts and theories, enabling students to easily access definitions of key terms as well as introducing them to a range of contemporary ideas about Leisure. In doing so, it provides a valuable reference point for students, and can be used to signpost further relevant reading' - Dr Fiona Jordan, School of the Built and Natural Environment, University of the West of England, Bristol
a welcome backup for students ( and tutors alike) to confirm their understanding of key terms and concepts in this field. Hyperlinks for further reading would have been useful . From our sports studies perspective a sister volume dedicated to sport alone would be especially welcome.
A great addition to the honours (4th year) students course.
This text is both accessible and engaging and offers a fundamental insight to the key concepts, terms and theories of studying leisure.
Very useful, providing ready access to current thinking in leisure studies.
It is a useful book for beginners, an ideal guide for 1st year undergraduates studying sports and leisure and tourism programmes.
