About the book

A comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to public policymaking and planning in the leisure, sport and tourism sectors, this book:

  • examines the theoretical issues underpinning public sector policymaking such as political ideologies, leisure wants, needs, demand and benefits, and human rights in leisure, sport, tourism and culture;
  • discusses the debates surrounding the role of the state versus market, and models of organizational decision-making; and
  • uses applied sections addressing strategic planning and performance evaluation to provide a link between theory and practical analytical techniques.
