This book, recently published, is one of the most comprehensive references on child abuse currently available. It includes just about everything you might want to know about child abuse, from epidemiology, to diagnosis and treatment and everything else in between. It makes a very good case for shaken baby syndrome and does a very nice job of putting together the biological as well as the anecdotal evidence for its existence.
