This book provides a broad overview of the ways in which 'adventurous practices' influence, and are influenced by, the world
around them. The concept of adventure is one that is too often tackled within subject silos of philosophy, education, tourism,
or leisure. While much of the analysis is strong, there is little cross-pollination between disciplines. Adventure & Society
pulls together the threads of these discourses into one coherent treatment of the term 'adventure' and the role that it plays
in human social life of the 21st century. It explores how these practices can be considered more deeply through theoretical
discourses of capitalism, identity construction, technology and social media, risk-taking, personal development, equalities,
and sustainability. As such, the book speaks to a broad audience of undergraduate and postgraduate students across diverse
subject areas, and aims to be an accessible starting point for deeper inquiry.
