This introductory textbook discusses the major theories and debates within the sociology of leisure.

Illustrated throughout with real-world examples, the book explores how leisure is changing in post-modern times, how and why work-life balance has become an important issue, whether women are still the disadvantaged sex in respect of access to leisure, whether leisure has answers to the problems of ageing populations, and whether leisure-based lifestyles are becoming significant sources of social and personal identity.
