Introduction: The Struggle for Leisure
In this introduction, the editors make the case for the book’s structure and format and its focus on sociology of leisure and leisure studies seen through local, virtual and global perspectives. They discuss the history and development of sociology of leisure in Research Committee 13 (RC13 Sociology of Leisure) of the International Sociological Association, from which the book emerged.
