Bibliography:

A list of the books I currently hold. I have also raided the local University library. But this is my 'what have I got list' for the benefit of my fellow researchers. This might prove useful if you want to ask "have you read?" For the casual browser I've noted a few points on each book as to why I got it and how useful it was.
