The second edition of LEISURE FOR CANADIANS builds on the work started in the first effort and introduces a new theme within the larger leisure literature, that of sport and events management. Seven new chapters focusing on various aspects of sport and event planning have been added, along with a chapter on the built environment and leisure behavior. As was the case in the first edition, this text is comprised of chapters written buy scholars from across Canada. All the contributors were asked to imagine they were talking with someone who asked, WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT YOUR TOPIC? The individual and collective goal was to bring the reader up to date on what is known on that topic. This text is appropriate for new students to leisure hoping to grasp key issues as well as more
advanced students seeking to explore leisure's complex role in our society. The contributors have worked hard to bring the most current thinking on a wide variety of topics. Together, they paint a picture of both the challenges and opportunities that leisure presents.
