Renaissance Revealed! Jan. 27 2013
By Douglas S. Kondziolka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the stories of the Renaissance Festival subculture that the book had to offer. As a member of an act which has been performing at Festivals for over 30 years I found most of the information to be accurate and I enjoyed the mini-interviews with various participants. It obviously originates from an "academic" POV and maintains much of this flavor in the book. I do wish it had been written better; at times the writing is difficult to follow....

Excellent history of "the Faire" Dec 20 2012
By Freddy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very nice piece of scholarship by Ms. Rubin. Each page is dense with Faire history, context and socio-political analysis of the milieu from which the Faire has evolved. The people and theatrical productions and techniques that have shaped the Faire are discussed and explained with a thoroughness that will help those who enjoy the Faire to understand why the Faire has become important to them. There is also an interesting chapter on those folks who dislike the Faire and an examination of why this is the case. This book, at times, is a somewhat intellectual analysis, but none-the-less somehow manages to not get dull. I found it to be a very enjoyable read that moved along at a brisk pace.

It's a wonderful and personal journey May 26 2013
By john - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was very much involved with this original Renaissance Faire. The Faire, and so many people mentioned in this book who made it happen, brought a lot of magic to my life that I will never forget. Reading the book takes me back. A real joy to read.

The Renaissance Faire - Counterculture People & Lifestyle May 13 2013
By Adlai Climan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A great history of the Faire as the seeds were planted, grew, blossomed, matured. For those who have ever worked a faire, a must-read. For those who ever visited a faire, particularly in California, tis will tell you how it all started and show you the "man behind the curtain" as they say in Oz. Lots of quotes from people I know, but if these are just names on paper, they won't have as much meaing for the casual reader. Could use LOTS more photos.
