Overview

The Association for the Study of Play (TASP) is the sponsor of this eighth volume in the Play & Culture Studies series. TASP is a professional group of researchers who study play. The focus of this eighth volume of the Play & Culture Studies series is on how play takes many forms as it cuts across species, ages, and cultures. The articles in this volume present current theoretical and empirical research on play and culture from a variety of disciplines including psychology, education, animal studies, and sociology. Applications to practice and policy implications are presented as well. Volume 8 continues the tradition of the Play & Culture series by presenting a view of play that is broad in scope both in terms of the subjects of study and the ways in which researchers approach the study of these diverse forms of play.

Editorial Reviews

Spring 2010 American Journal of Play
this work presents fascinating ideas....the volume is replete with ideas on play that span time, the life cycle, and even species. Chapters offer more questions than answers and elevate our curiousity about play, rather than satisfy it, as any good book on play should do.
