Hardcover, 1990


Venture Pub (1990), Edition: 1st US Edition 1st Printing, 297 pages


Written as an introductory text, A Social History of Leisure Since 1600 describes, synthesizes, and provides a broad theoretical framework in which to understand the emergence of leisure as a central feature of the modern world. While recreation and leisure are receiving increasing attention from historians, to date there had been no book which provided a broad-based understanding for the beginning student of the subject. Cross has achieved a rare feat -- a book that will be of interest to both beginning students and historians.
