For a short overview, I recommend Victor and Adams "principles of 
neurology". In my fifth edition "international edition" on page 1220.
There is some confusion with terminology. The authors call these 
deseases Limb-Girdle Dystrophies (Scapulohumeral and Pelvifemoral 
Muscular Dystrophy). These desseases are also known as "limb-girdle 
dystrophies of Erb". There is some overlap to Duchenne-Becker and the 
Landouzy-Déjerine types.
