Taking his cue from Walt Whitman's "higher progress," he follows the traces of that dream, cataloguing the myriad voices that prepared for and lived in an opening "realm of freedom." Free Time reminds Americans of the forgotten, best part of the "American Dream" - that more and more of our lives might be lived freely, with an enriching family life, with more time to enjoy nature, friendship, and the adventures of the mind and of the spirit. Benjamin Kline Hunnicutt is a Professor of Leisure Studies at the University of Iowa.
He is also the author of Kellogg's Six-Hour Day and Work Without End: Abandoning Shorter Hours for the Right to Work (both Temple).

Timely critique of working to avoid leisure
Very well written and narrated. I hope my followers find the time to listen to this audio if they believe in revitalizing ideologies of leisure.
Historical coverage and very relevant comparisons given to contemporary materialism with its endless production of more stuff -- wherein insistent demands are made on the work slave's time.
