• The leisure landscape is a complex and diverse one that is both natural and built, dark and light, safe and dangerous, contained or without boundary, and profoundly influences the manner in which leisure is performed and experienced. These leisurescapes are increasingly becoming significant sites for the construction of individual and shared frameworks in which people orient themselves and act in wider society. Drawing on international contributions by leading researchers in the field this book aims to map out the complex relationship that leisure has with place. A key signature of the text will be to illustrate the transdisciplinarity of this key feature of leisure studies, and by doing so offer, for the first time, a more rounded and inclusive approach to the study of leisure and place. It also aims to explore and elucidate the extent in which leisure places and spaces form, affect and influence personal, social and collective identities
