Russell, Ruth V.
Sagamore Publishing LLC
Originally published in 1996, "Pastimes" introduced an exciting new text that explored leisure and recreation philosophy and science, the various subfields, and the leisure services industry. This new edition is the result of what the author has learned from years of engagement with leisure theory, research, and personal and professional practice. Throughout the book, the author has tried to use the most interesting, relevant, and exciting information and approaches possible. More than a textbook, "Pastimes" clarifies the connection between leisure and being human.
