The Politics of Leisure Policy provides a systematic account of the impact of social, economic and cultural change on the demand for leisure and of the response of politicians, professionals, and service providers. This substantially revised second edition has been updated throughout and recast to reflect the changed realities of the post Thatcher era, notably the impact of globalization and the search by New Labour for a 'responsible market' approach to leisure policy and provision.
