This landmark publication brings together some of the most perceptive commentators of the present moment to explore core ideas and cutting edge developments in the field of Leisure Studies. It offers important new insights into the dynamics of the transformation of leisure in contemporary societies, tracing the '¬Ügrowing edge'¬" of the discipline and examining Leisure Studies'¬" fundamental connections with cognate disciplines such as Sociology, Cultural Studies, History, Sport Studies and Tourism. The book contains original work from key scholars across the globe, including those working outside the Leisure Studies mainstream. It showcases the state of the art of contemporary Leisure Studies, covering key topics and key thinkers from the psychology of leisure to leisure policy, from Bourdieu to Baudrillard, and suggests that leisure in the 21stcentury should be understood as centring on a new '¬ÜBig Seven'¬" (holiday, drink, drugs, sex, gambling, TV and shopping). No other book has gone as far in redefining the identity of the discipline of Leisure Studies, or in suggesting how the substantive ideas of Leisure Studies need to be rethought. The Routledge Handbook of Leisure Studiesshould therefore be the intellectual guide of first choice for all scholars, academics, researchers and students working in this subject area.
