"There are textbooks galore, but there aren't many crafted as intelligently as this one. This book will change the way that students understand leisure. It will give them an easier entry to that place where difficult ideas fuse into something intelligible, where real understanding sits and the educated imagination is stirred."
- Tony Blackshaw, Sheffield Hallam University

Peter Bramham and Stephen Wagg provide a foundation for those studying within the broad field of leisure studies. The book gives students an accessible and engaging introduction to leisure studies and leisure research, encouraging students to engage in reflexive analysis of their common sense understandings of everyday life and enabling them to develop an understanding of contemporary leisure studies and changing leisure practices.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There are textbooks galore, but there aren't many crafted as intelligently as this one. This book will change the way that students understand leisure. It will give them an easier entry to that place where difficult ideas fuse into something intelligible, where real understanding sits and the educated imagination is stirred. -- Tony Blackshaw
In keeping with exploring the central theme of each chapter, relevant and contemporary case studies and exemplars have been included to allow students to engage with the material. Students will like these as will tutors as they can be used as a focus for discussion. Overall this book does achieve its aims, however this is not an introductory textbook that students will pick up and read through in the one go. This is a thought provoking book that students will return to in later years of their course and it will be used to stimulate ideas for project and dissertation work. -- Rita Carmouche, University of Huddersfield
