OK, here goes.  It's not much, but this is not thoroughly
researched, and it's been a while since I've seen any of these.
But it's a place to start.  There's more references within some
of these books.
 
-----------
 
Russell Campbell, Cinema Strikes Back: Radical Filmmaking in the
United States, 1930 - 1942.  (Ann Arbor: U Michigan Press, 1982)
 
[Thanks, Jeremy, for pointing this one out again.  I _was_ aware
of it, as a matter of fact.  It was presented as a thesis at North-
western in 1978.  So far, it seems to be the only published book
devoted solely to the subject.]
 
Joel Stewart Zuker, Ralph Steiner, Filmmaker and Still Photographer.
(New York: Arno Press, 1978)  [Steiner was, IMHO, the best _filmmaker_
in the group and its periphery.]
 
Ralph Steiner, A Point of View. (Middleton: Wesleyan UP, 1978)
 
Kazan on Kazan, by Michel Ciment. (New York: Viking, 1974)  [The first
chapter of this contains Elia Kazan's recollections of his work with
Nykino.]
 
Lewis Jacobs, The Documentary Tradition (New York: Hopkinson and Blake,
1971)  [Has some material in the 1940s section.]
 
Richard Meran Barsam, Nonfiction Film, A Critical History. (???)
[Also has a separate 1930s/40s section with relevant material.]
 
In addition, I know that there's a collection of articles for a book
in the works in Germany; however, the publication date for this is
unclear.  I'm unaware of any articles in journals written on the
subject.  Jeremy, do you know of any?  Or anybody?

That's it.
