Sawyer and Bird – towards a bibliography
[This is not a complete or fully checked bibliography; it is, rather, a grouping together of references from various sources. The books have been checked out, and their details can be confirmed. The journal articles are included because they look as if they might be worth following up – but references have been taken on trust, and their accuracy is not vouched for.]
