Partially Annotated Bibliography of Textbooks and Monographs

The purpose of this appendix is to give instructors and students of nonparametric statistics a list of textbooks and reference books in the field. Care has been taken to give adequate coverage to density estimation and nonparametric regression, the most active areas of current research in the field. The bootstrap, which is placed by some under the broad nonparametric umbrella, has been excluded from this bibliography to keep its length manageable. The intention is not to rate each book in terms of its suitability for a particular course, although comments do follow some of the entries. Instead, an extensive list of published reviews follows most of the entries. In addition, a letter appears prior to each of the 93 entries to indicate whether the entry is primarily a bibliography (B), computing manual (C), research monograph (M), proceedings (P), or textbook (T). Some of the monographs would make suitable texts for graduate courses. The format for citations of published reviews is journal (year, volume, page number(s)).
