I did a quick search of our database and came up with the following books 
and magazines.  I don't know if your country has an inter-library loan 
system or not.  If so, these books can be ordered to your library by one of 
the numbers at in each abstract (OCLC #, ALT #, etc.).  Hope these are of 
some help to you.
