This is a book that has been needed for a long time: a history of the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronisms). Now that the SCA is over 40 years old, it has built up a history of its own. This work is both entertaining and insightful, combining the author's own experience as an SCA neophyte with some good research. Most importantly (in my mind) is the author's objective way of looking at both the benefits and the drawbacks of the SCA, and how it compares to other groups of similar focus.
