Abstract: In the forward of this text, Peg Connolly noted that there is "an increased momentum of change surrounding us in our professional practice areas. . ." (p. ix). She cautioned the reader to be "diligent" in our review of our profession and described the purpose of this text as providing the reader with a "professional vehicle for review" of our profession. As promised, Compton's Issues in Therapeutic Recreation: Toward a New Millennium does provide its readers, students and professionals alike, an opportunity to examine the field of therapeutic recreation in areas ranging from advocacy to practice techniques. Introducing new and critical issues appropriate for the new millennium such as legislation, health care financing, credentialling, and research, this text provides a wide range of issues and concepts to understand and discuss.
