'Amusements they must have, or life would hardly be worth living...' Newcastle Weekly Chronicle, 1895 This text explores life in the mining villages of the north-east of England in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries - a time of massive social and industrial change. The sporting lives of these communities are often marginalized by historians, but this thoroughly researched account reveals how play as well as work were central to the lives of the working classes. Miners contributed significantly to the economic success of the north-east during this time, yet living conditions in the mining villages were 'horrendous'. Sport and recreation were essential to bring meaning and pleasure to mining families, and were fundamental to the complex social relationships within and between communities. Features of this extensive text include: * analysis of the physical, social and economic structures that determined the leisure lives of the mining villages * the role of 'traditional' and 'new' sports * comparisons with other British regions.

Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts erfreuten sich öffentliche Lichtbildvorträge als Mittel der Belehrung und Agitation großer Beliebtheit. Mutterland dieser Medieninszenierung ist Großbritannien, wo eine eigene Wirtschaftsbranche mit Produktionsfirmen, Vertriebsstrukturen und kommerziellen wie nichtkommerziellen Anbietern von unterhaltsamen Shows und lehrreichen Vorführungen entstand. In britischen Groß- und Mittelstädten sind lantern lectures (Lichtbildervorträge) ein fester Bestandteil des Angebots öffentlicher Bildungsveranstaltungen. Soziale Organisationen, die in der Armenfürsorge und Armutsprävention tätig sind, setzen Projektionsaufführungen gezielt zur Propagierung ihrer Ziele, zur Mitgliederwerbung und zum Spendensammeln ein. Der Reiz dieses neuen Mediums wurde noch gesteigert mit festlichen Umzügen und multisensorischen Darbietungen wie der Kostümierung der Vortragenden und Operateure oder der Verabreichung von Speisen und Getränken nebst gemeinsamen Singen. Als "Great Gun", als großartige "Bilderkanone" (S. 291) zur Bekämpfung von Armut bzw. der durch Armut drohenden ,Sünde' bewährte sich der bildwerfende Projektor also nicht nur über die projizierten Bilder, sondern ganz wesentlich im szenischen Verbund mit sozialen Praktiken wie Umzügen, Gottesdiensten, Speisungen und gemeinsamem Singen. Die Autorin untersucht diese Medienpraktik am Beispiel von zwei christlichen Organisationen der Temperenzbewegung (United Kingdom Band of Hope Union und Church of England Temperance Society), drei Organisationen christlicher Mission und Unterweisung (Sunday School Union, Church Army, Salvation Army) sowie zwei säkulare sozialpolitische Organisation (Co-operative Movement und Clarion Movement). Sie leistet damit Pionierarbeit bei der Erforschung eines bisher wenig beachteten visuellen Massenmediums.

Working-class culture has often been depicted by historians as an atomised and fragmented entity lacking any significant cultural contestation. Drawing on a wealth of primary and secondary source material, this book powerfully challenges these recent assumptions and places social class centre stage once more. Arguing that there was a remarkable continuity in male working-class culture between 1850 and 1945, Beaven contends that despite changing socio-economic contexts, male working-class culture continued to draw on a tradition of active participation and cultural contestation that was both class- and gender-exclusive, and that the issue of male leisure was intimately linked with contemporary debates on mass society and morality. This lively and readable book uses fascinating accounts from those who participated in and observed contemporary popular leisure making it of interest to students and teachers of social history, popular culture, urban history, historical geography, historical sociology and cultural studies.

American living standards improved considerably between 1900 and 2000. While most observers focus on gains in per-capita income as a measure of economic well-being, economists have used other measures of well-being: height, weight, and longevity. The increased amount of leisure time per week and across people's lifetimes, however, has been an unsung aspect of the improved standard of living in America. In Century of the Leisured Masses, David George Surdam explores the growing presence of leisure activities in Americans' lives and how this development came out throughout the twentieth century. Most Americans have gone from working fifty-five or more hours per week to working fewer than forty, although many Americans at the top rungs of the economic ladder continue to work long hours. Not only do more Americans have more time to devote to other activities, they are able to enjoy higher-quality leisure. New forms of leisure have given Americans more choices, better quality, and greater convenience. For instance, in addition to producing music themselves, they can now listen to the most talented musicians when and where they want. Television began as black and white on small screens; within fifty years, Americans had a cast of dozens of channels to choose from. They could also purchase favorite shows and movies to watch at their convenience. Even Americans with low incomes enjoyed television and other new forms of leisure. This growth of leisure resulted from a combination of growing productivity, better health, and technology. American workers became more productive and chose to spend their improved productivity and higher wages by consuming more, taking more time off, and enjoying better working conditions. By century's end, relatively few Americans were engaged in arduous, dangerous, and stultifying occupations. The reign of tyranny on the shop floor, in retail shops, and in offices was mitigated; many Americans could even enjoy leisure activities during work hours. Failure to consider the gains in leisure time and leisure consumption understates the gains in American living standards. With Century of the Leisured Masses, Surdam has comprehensively documented and examined the developments in this important marker of well-being throughout the past century.
