The story of leisure : context, concepts, and current controversy by Jay Sanford Shivers( Book )

16 editions published between 1990 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Story of Leisure, takes a detailed, and sometimes controversial, look at the meaning of leisure - what it is, how it developed, what it has become, and where it is going. Written by a professor who has been studying leisure and culture for more than forty years and a manager of a dynamic municipal recreational agency, this thought-provoking book will help you understand the importance of leisure as a basis for cultural development." "Part I examines the history of leisure from the prehistoric age to the present. It recounts the development of leisure and explores the events that have shaped how people define and use leisure. Part II discusses concepts and philosophies - such as culture, recreation, and social programs - as they pertain to leisure. Timelines, case studies, and stories allow you to put the material into perspective while controversy questions help you to consider other points of view." "Not only is The Story of Leisure an outstanding textbook; it's also an enjoyable read for recreational specialists, sport historians, and sport sociologists."--Jacket

Within the classical framework of the camp counselor's role, this 446-page book discusses the details of everyday camp life and the dynamics of the counselor's role, as well as providing a philosophical frame of reference for the values of outdoor education and of ecology. Beginning with a history of organized camping in the United States, Part I explores the problems of camp administration, operation, and development--all based on accountability, legal requirements, and basic philosophy. Part ii deals with the counselor's role in camp reflected through the dynamics of group living, camper behavior problems, peer relationships, and the counselor's qualifications, obligations, and conduct. Part iii uses the natural sciences as a point of departure for outdoor camp activities and delves into survival techniques, exploration, nature study, campcrafts, and campfire activities. Included are Appendix a (proper foods), Appendix b (a child permission form and a counselor employment contract), a list of 106 selected references, a list of 41 films and filmstrips, and a subject index.
