McQuarrie, Fiona A. E.; Jackson, Edgar L.
Journal of Career Development, v29 n1 p37-53 Fall 2002
Literature was reviewed on constraints on leisure time choices and on serious leisure (continuous engagement in an activity, which becomes a leisure "career"). Insights include the following: (1) constraints are not necessarily insurmountable but may be negotiated; (2) responses to constraints are not necessarily passive; and (3) constraints may cause career transitions, visibly or invisibly. (Contains 50 references.) (SK)
