Shared Fantasy: Role-Playing Games as Social Worlds by Gary Alan Fine, published in 1983, was the first comprehensive scholarly book on role-playing games. While Fine's sociological study predated the popularization of LARP, this book is considered foundational in both role-playing studies and the ethnography of subcultures.
