Finding Leisure in China examines the emergence of leisure and leisure services in China from the perspective of both an American scholar and a Chinese scholar, each of whom is familiar with a range of issues concerning leisure and tourism in China. Subjects include the rise of "leisure" as a new concept, government provision for leisure and tourism, crowding and carrying capacity, urbanization and leisure provision, using streets for leisure, constraints to leisure, and historic changes in China that are making leisure possible. Each chapter is presented by Godbey and then critiqued and put in context by Song. (A Chinese language version of this book has been published by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Press.)

The authors have taught at the higher education level. Moreover, they have consulted widely for major corporations in the hotel, tourism, and park and recreation fields.
