Parkour and Critical Sociology: A review of Jeffrey Kidder’s Parkour and the City and a call for comparative and socio-culturally sensitive studies of lifestyle sports
Jeffrey Kidder’s book gives a comprehensive and in-depth insight into the discipline of parkour as it is practiced and has evolved in the United States. Thus, Kidder’s book fills the need for studies in parkour to be sensitive to the local context. Signe Højbjerre Larsen, a parkour performer herself, was impressed by Kidders’s study, and this review essay is a critical hommage to Kidder and his book.
