To make your holiday shopping as smooth and frustration-free as possible, from December 5-December 27 only books currently in stock at one or both of our locations will be available for purchase online. We will still be able to take preorders for not-yet-released books. But online orders for other books not currently on our shelves will have to wait until after the holidays, in order to minimize disruptions. If a really popular book is out of stock, check back in a couple of days to see if more copies arrive. Send any questions to email@example.com
Skateboarding is not readily associated with university research projects, and no certainly scholarly approach can substitute for the empirical knowledge gained through the act of skateboarding itself--the movement of the body with and on a skateboard. Nevertheless, the theoretical implications of this movement and its spatial and social settings are ripe for exploration within a number of different academic disciplines, from urbanism to cultural theory. Since skateboarding can influence and touch upon so many aspects of everyday life through its unique appropriation of and relation to the urban environment, the theoretical reflections and discursive explorations it invites can alter the way we think and move. This publication provides a comprehensive insight into these discourses.
