Initially published in 1986, Studies in Outdoor Recreation was the first book to integrate the social science literature on outdoor recreation. Studies from this broad, interdisciplinary field were reviewed & synthesized into a body of knowledge that emphasized the practical management implications of the research base. The book has become a standard text in courses in park & outdoor recreation management & an invaluable reference for park & recreation managers. This new edition of Studies in Outdoor Recreation integrates more than a thousand theoretical & empirical studies & has been completely revised to reflect current research & new concerns about race & gender issues. New chapters on recreation conflict, substitutability, specialization & indicators, & standards of quality have been added. The book also now includes a guide to the outdoor recreation literature.Manning, Robert E. is the author of 'Studies in outdoor recreation: Search and research for satisfaction' with ISBN 9780870713446 and ISBN 0870713442.
