This comprehensive, multi-disciplinary introduction to public policymaking and planning in the leisure, sport and tourism sectors examines theoretical issues underpinning public sector policymaking, including: political ideologies; leisure wants, needs, demand and benefits; human rights; role of the state versus the market; and models of organizational decision-making. Expanded to include sport as a subject separate from leisure, this updated edition of the successful Leisure and Tourism, Policy and Planning includes new coverage of U-Plan, a practical, participation-based local planning methodology, and three sets of planning tools: stakeholder consultation, demand forecasting, and facility and service appraisal. The book provides a link between theory and practical analytical techniques for policy development, plan-making and evaluation of outcomes. It includes an extensive bibliography and questions and exercises for each chapter, making it an ideal text for students as well as practitioners. Web-based support materials are also available for students and teachers.RMRS-GTR-72, US Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, Fort Collins, Colorado, available at: ... of Pedestrian and Bicycle Facilities: Recommended Procedures for the a#39;Bicyclesa#39; Chapter of the Highway Capacity Manual. ...
