This book presents 49 issues involving changes in the environment, technology, values, demography, the economy, health, work and free time, and governance that could drastically affect leisure and the implementation of leisure services as we enter the twenty-first century. Discussion questions and possible implications for leisure follow each topic.These topics were chosen to encourage contemplation and discussion among students, educators, and leisure service professionals in order to better understand the changes occurring and how they may effect the field of leisure services, and one's own personal leisure pursuits. Section One introduces changes that are fueling the reinvention of leisure and discusses why leisure providers should strive to understand these changes. Section Two surveys trends that are effecting or will effect the future of leisure services. Section Three examines strategies that may be useful to those involved in leisure services for adjusting to, and then thriving in, our ever-changing world.
