Mandi-book Claw


i know with the internet now a days books just are not realistic, but i picked this one up at the library and it's the best explanation of what skateboarding means in relation to capitalism, city life, and architecture i have encountered so far. Quite different then all the other skate books already available, this book was primarily influenced by the French sociologist Henry Lefebvre (a very rad dude). "People use space, and particularly boundary spaces of passage and encounter, to create their own social identity, and often do so through spaces of ritual and initiation."
The book is called 'Skateboarding, Space, and the City: Architecture and the Body' by Iain Borden
