Academic studies of FSM participants

Though most studies listed here are concerned only with participants, a few use participant studies as background for conflict analysis.

This list is not complete. If you know of other pertinent references, please tell us. Copies of their texts, as well as of those listed already, would save us some work. We'd particularly appreciate help in securing permissions to put these studies online.
