Like everything else about the Free Software Project, this bibliography is a work in progress. It is by no means complete, not even for the chapters that have already been uploaded. Every few weeks I add a few more books, papers and Web sites into the bibliography -- and since most of these resources are not available online, I thought it might be useful to include them here. Eventually, I also plan to add copious endnotes, but that may require going without sleep permanently.
