Chivalry, Knighthood, tournaments. "The Book of the Tournament" by Brian Price brings out the magic of medieval tournament re-enactments as they build upon the traditions in what has become an authentic Western martial art. This book talks eloquently about how these tournaments work, what can be expected in a Society for Creative Anachronism tournament, what kinds of arms and armour work best for the tournament, and what it takes to succeed. It offers a fascinating look into the ideals of people working to study ethics as they combat one another in the list field. It features a hardcover quality binding with linen paper printed in the style of the early 14th century.
