Although it has much more than what you appear to require, Richard
Bartle's new book covers both the history of virtual worlds and the
interpersonal relationships of players.  It does so from the
perspective of a designer, but I personally think that this can give
insights often overlooked from other perspectives.

BTW Richard, thanks for the autograph.  My wife says that you were
very kind and even paid for the shipping yourself.  It made a
wonderful Christmas gift.
