Pleased to Announce a New Book
The book is aimed at students studying for careers in parks, receation, and tourism. I sure hope that our book has wide use in universities across the U.S. and Canada as it has much to say about leisure services being truly inclusionary -- that is serving not only people with disabilities but all who are from underrepresented sectors of society such as aging populations, women, those with nondominent sexual orientations, and people from racial and ethnic groups.
As stated in the Preface: "In order to reflect the broadened concept of inclusion represented in the sixth edition of Inclusive and Special Recreation, as well as to represent the perspective that recreation and leisure contribute significantly to the growth and well-being of individuals, the subtitle of the book has been revised. The full title of the sixth edition is Inclusive and Special Recreation: Opportunities for Diverse Populations to Flourish."
