Leisure Today: Selected Readings.
American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, Washington, DC. American Association of Leisure and Recreation.
Where does leisure lead--to philosophical changes, to changes in our behavior and its effect within and with our environment, to a different society? Are we moving from a work to a leisure ethnic? Leisure Today is concerned with the challenge expressed above and with the educational responsibilities for experiences and the consequent individual and cultural enrichment which accompanies this process. Leisure Today: Selected Readings is a compendium of articles taken from three years of the magazine Leisure Today which appears as an editorial insert of the Journal of Physical Education and Recreation. This book of readings is a resource housing diverse thought, oftentimes controversial, sometimes conflicting, as we deal with the varied subject matter in which articles focus on areas so closely related to leisure as a time element or an attitude. Leisure Today: Selected Readings draws on many experts with different backgrounds, formal training, professional experience, and value orientation. (Author)
