About this book

This book develops a new theory of instrumental whiteness and leisure. Empirical research is drawn upon to highlight whiteness across a comprehensive and internationally-grounded range of leisure practices. The book explores sports participation, sports media and sports fandom, informal leisure, outdoor leisure, music, popular culture and tourism.

Reviews

"Spracklen's two [previous] books (both of which apply a Habermasian perspective to the study of leisure) are probably the most important contributions to leisure scholarship so far in the twenty-first century." - Ken Roberts, University of Chester

"Written in an engaging style, this original, astute and critical book will appeal to academics, researchers and students, and will likely become an important and well-read contribution to leisure studies." - Daniel Burdsey, University of Brighton
