Summary
"Douglas Kleiber argues that the value of leisure for development lies in the particular experiences derived from those leisure activities. Experiences that fulfill a need for autonomy, competence, self-expression, and relatedness; that provide a dialectical response to other people's action; or that address age-related tasks are generative of development and self-actualization. Kleiber then demonstrates how leisure patterns indicate that activities stimulating developmental change are taken less often and less effectively than they might be. He concludes by promoting personal, social, and political practices and opportunities that would optimize our use of leisure."--BOOK JACKET
