This text gives an historical geographical approach to the field of recreation and tourism. It brings together material from a number of different disciplines and accompanies this with maps and diagrams spanning a period from the 16th century up to the early-20th century. The geographical focus is not restricted to Britain and Europe, the author also encompasses North America, providing the reader with many comparisons. The overall framework of the book is to investigate historically the inter-relationships which resulted from the whole recreation and tourism system, studying the processes and patterns which occurred in both leisure-generating and leisure-destination areas. Within this context, the book also explores the diverse aspects of places, both urban and rural, in shaping distinctive leisure activities, plus issues relating to development such as land ownership and those private and public agencies within their contemporary political, social and cultural climates.
