Questia, your online research library and paper writing resource, contains thousands of scholarly articles and books about Leisure and Recreation.
Throughout the world, people participate in unique leisure and recreation activities, depending on their interests. Leisure activities – sports, crafts, games—developed within a culture, as a result of the available resources. Imperialism, and later globalization, led to the cultural spillover of many recreational activities. Often entire social communities will form around a recreation activity. These communities are referred to as ‘clubs,’ ‘leagues,’ or ‘societies’ and can be either casual or formal in structure.
