Your message has prompted me to go out looking for some literature and
resources, and so the following is what I have found. The Wikipedia
article is the most helpful, actually, with 150~ references, and
supposedly a good overview of what's going on- I imagine that lots of
political activists are very set on keeping their claims on the wiki
pages, since it's such a "hot" topic.
