Two fine guidebooks on Kamakura:

Exploring Kamakura,by Michael Cooper (Weatherhill), a delightful and informative ramble through each district of Kamakura, with eight centuries of history, culture, and legend artfully woven into easy walking tours. In Kamakura, unlike Tokyo, signs of the city's tumultuous history are visible everywhere, and Michael Cooper makes them come alive.
Trails of Two Cities, by John Carroll (Kodansha), covers more territory (Yokohama is the second city) and the Miura Peninsula as well as Kamakura, with detailed information on hiking and walking routes throughout, and shops and restaurants.
