This compilation of essays presents a broad introduction to substantive issues entering into leisure studies, placing emphasis on the matters of values, goals, and lifestyles. Specific educational perspectives are discussed through such aspects as language, futurology, the arts and recreation, and human values and religion. Related social policy issues considered include aging, the urban framework, business, labor and new work patterns, and the design profession.

"Prostitution, Power and Freedom brings new insights to the ongoing debate among scholars, activists, and others on the controversial subject of prostitution. Sociologist Julia O'Connell Davidson's study is based on wide research from various corners of the world and includes interviews with prostitutes, clients, and procurers active in the international sex trade. O'Connell Davidson demonstrates the complexity of prostitution, arguing that it is not simply an effect of male oppression and violence or insatiable sexual needs; nor is it an unproblematic economic encounter. The book provides a sophisticated understanding that uncovers the economic and political inequalities underlying prostitution, but also shows that while prostitution necessarily implies certain freedoms for the clients, the amount of freedom experienced by individual prostitutes varies greatly." "This book will be of great interest to those in gender and women's studies, sexuality and cultural studies, the sociology of work and organizations, and social policy. General readers will also appreciate learning new ways of thinking about this age-old social phenomenon."--BOOK JACKET
