Work and Leisure: An Interdisciplinary Study in Theory, Education and Planning. Human Movement Series.
Haworth, J. T., Ed.; Smith, M. A., Ed.
The contents of this book divide into three parts: (1) theory; (2) education; and (3) planning. The first part of the book considers a number of broad related issues in work and leisure. The term "theory" is used in a broad sense and encompasses philosophical as well as empirically based views and models of the nature of man, work, and leisure. One of the issues considered is whether or not we are a work or leisure centered society and the implications for policy. A second is the associated issue of what aims society will wish to plan for, and what goals and needs it will try to meet. The problem of what methodologies will be used in the investigation of these two areas is the third major theme. The other two parts of the book develop further some aspects of these themes. The chapters on education examine the role of education in a changing society in relation to both schools and community and inter-relates culture and class as a linking theme. The planning section looks at some of the problems associated with the formulation of objectives in planning and examines a number of factors which affect both provision and implementation in the public and private areas.
