Ecarius (education U. of Cologne, Germany), Klieme, Stecher, and Woods collect 10 case studies from the proceedings of the International Conference on Extracurricular and Out-of-School Time Educational Research, held at Justus-Liebig-U. of Giessen in Germany in October 2010. Researchers in the humanities and social sciences and education describe extracurricular and out-of-school educational activities for children in Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, England, Sweden, the US, Korea, and Japan, including all-day schools, leisure centers, and after-school programs, as well as how programs build resiliency for at-risk youth, and the role of out-of-school time in obesity reduction. The first chapter reviews research on the topic. No index is provided. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
