Integrating theory with practice, the book provides foundational perspectives in the study of leadership at all levels—direct service, supervisory, managerial, and community/civic—in recreation, parks, and leisure service settings. It presents theoretical and foundational information on the work of the leader, followed by a presentation of the work of leaders within groups.

It also addresses leadership in a number of recreation, parks, and leisure service settings. It includes a variety of pedagogical elements including case studies; vignettes of significant, historical and current leaders; experiential learning experiences; and leadership perspectives from current recreation, parks, and leisure service professionals.
