Abstract: Common themes in current leisure research include topics regarding opportunities and availability of recreation programs, stigma, negotiating barriers and constraints, and physical and psychological accessibility of recreation for women, people of color, low socio-economic groups, families, or other disenfranchised groups. Theories, research, and examples presented within the reviewed disability texts have relevance to issues of inclusion for all disciplines of leisure research, not just those dealing with disabling conditions. Research that directly or indirectly addresses related topics of race, culture, gender, class, religion, and ethnicity can be enhanced by the information provided in both the reviewed texts.
