Play-A Basic Pathway to the Self

Based on the exceptional scholarship of distinguished sociologist Thomas S. Henricks, this penetrating, accessible, and wide-ranging collection presents the culmination of his efforts—through the American Journal of Play in particular—to elucidate what play is and what it means to human beings. The book presents five of his original essays and an interview that previously appeared in the journal with the addition of a new essay, a historiographical study of play scholarship. It also includes a foreword by Scott Eberle, former editor of the American Journal of Play.
