About this product
- DescriptionThis text makes a contribution to considering leisure as a primary aspect of cultural life. Chris Rojek treats modern culture as performative, that is, there are strong pressures on us to keep busy, even if we are busy doing thing. Leisure is analyzed as a status placing activity. The implications of the post-work thesis for leisure, the role of inequality in leisure practice are explored. Perhaps the most table feature of the book is the discussion of the abrmal forms of leisure and the attack on the medicalized model of society. The book should be of interest to anyone in leisure studies and cultural studies.
- Author BiographyChris Rojek is Professor of Sociology and Culture at the Theory, Culture, and Society Center, Nottingham Trent University.
