Web Accessibility: A Foundation for Research,  S. Harper and Y.  
Yesilada, editors, Human-Computer Interaction Series. Springer,  
London, 1st edition, September 2008.

This book is written by leading experts in the field and provides an  
overview of existing research and also looks at future developments.  
It provides a much deeper insight than can be obtained through  
existing research libraries, aggregations, or search engines. In  
tackling the subject from a research, rather than practitioner  
standpoint, scientists, engineers and postgraduate students will find  
a definitive and foundational text that includes field overviews,  
references, issues, new research, problems and solutions, and  
opinions from industrial experts and renowned academics.
