While Bergeys et al., may be good for very detailed information, I don't know 
how much use it will be.  I'd reccomend trying to find a good review article. 
 Try using your univertities library computer.  You should have Medline or 
Current Contents.  Try using the word "review" in your search to screen out 
all the research articles.

Although it is certainly not a definative account, an interesting version of 
the TSS story can be found in "The Coming Plague."  It won't probably answer 
your scientific questions, but if you are interested in TSS, it might be worth 
a read.
