When reading a new book in this field it is always a good sign when it provides new insights and leads to encounters with new ideas and writers. The authors of Adventure and Society have achieved this by their transdisciplinary approach, currency and broad knowledge of the relevant fields from non-traditional as well as traditional sources. As a result, this book meets its aim of providing an excellent primer for undergraduate, postgraduate and research students as well as practitioners and academics wishing to further their understanding of adventure through the lens of the social sciences. It is already on the reading lists of my modules and the desks of my research students.
