Descriptions du produit

"Skateistan: The Tale of Skateboarding in Afghanistan" shares the strange and beautiful intersection of traditional Afghan society and a new generation of Afghan skateboarders and artists. It features the innovative Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) 'Skateistan,' which since 2007 has taught skateboarding and creative arts to girls and boys in Kabul, Afghanistan. Skateistan's opening of the country's first skatepark - and focus on working with Afghan girls and street-working youth - has been covered by major media outlets worldwide, including CNN, BBC, Al-Jazeera, and the New York Times. "Skateistan: The Tale of Skateboarding in Afghanistan" is the very first book about the subject and gives a rare, in-depth look into the lives of exceptional young Afghans facing incredible challenges in a city torn by war, but also full of life. This 320-page color book features stunning, previously unpublished photographs accompanied by essays, interviews and personal stories from Skateistan's founder Oliver Percovich and the young Afghans that have gone from being students to teachers in the skatepark and classrooms. Full of hope, beauty, brutal honesty - and skateboards! - this is a story about Afghanistan that you won't find anywhere else. All profits from the book will go towards Skateistan.

Pretty and Important 19 décembre 2012
Par Talia Kaufman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book tells a rare and uplifting true story, and it is beautiful to look at. A number of voices that have experienced the project along the way tell the story using interviews, essays, commentary, and really gorgeous photographs. Would be of great interest to any skater, development/aid worker, traveler, photographer and citizen of the world.

Gorgeous Book - Support this SPECTACULAR Cause! 7 décembre 2012
Par E. Jones - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I first heard about Skateistan through their 8 minute short film at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011, "To Live and Skate Kabul" (which you can check out on YouTube). This organization is doing great work, in the truest sense of that word. They have created a safe, fun haven of learning and tolerance in the heart of Afghanistan. They're bringing education to girls in a country in which only 10% of females of literate. I Love Skateistan - check them out at [...] and Buy This Book - it makes a Fantastic gift for anyone interested in skateboarding, humanitarian work, the Middle East, children's education, or photography. Get it!

Such an inspiration! 11 mai 2013
Par Virgínia Barbosa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I bought the book "The Tale of Skateboarding in Afghanistan" and read at once.
It was such an inspiration that got me thinking about my life and what I was doing with it.

Divided in three major sections 'Past', 'Present' and 'Future', the book starts by providing a cultural background on Afghanistan, the people, the war, the religion. We then move to the origin of Skateistan, and how Oliver started it all, here we have first person narration of the hard work involved, the gathering of children in the fountain to skate and all the challenges that had to be overcome in order to start an NGO such as this. The future of Skateistan couldn't be brighter, still a lot of work to do, but a lot of plans to bring
these children together, empowering them through skateboarding and arts.

Graphically the book is very appealing, having a really cool design. I love it! Throughout the book we have beautiful pictures of landscapes, people, skate sessions, etc. You will experience a book that is unique. It will inspire you, and make you think and
consider all kinds of things that ordinarily slip our minds.

A must have item. Everybody should read it!
