There is an excellent chapter written on the topic.  Galinat, WC 1988  The
origin of corn.  In: Corn and Corn Improvement 3rd Edition, Sprague, GF,
Dudley, JW. Eds., American Society of Agronomy Publishers, Madison WI, Pp
1 - 31.  

Also, one should read: 
Beadle, GW  1980  The ancestry of corn. Sci. Am. 242(1):112-119. 
Mangelsdorf, PC 1986 The origin of Corn  Sci. Am.  Aug: 80-86
