I am updating the list constantly, so changes have been made to it since the writing of this introduction.A bibliography of journal articles on autism would be valuable but would be much longer: it would not surprise me if there are 10,000 such articles.I will leave it to others to tackle such a list (I believe The Indiana Resource Center for Autism maintains such a list as does the Autism Research Unit of the University of Sunderland, England).At the time I'm writing this (2/00), I have titles for between 600 and 700 books specifically dedicated to Autism and I seldom add a book to the list because the vast majority of times that I see a reference or citation to a book, it is already in the list.
I now estimate that there are no more than 1000 such books in all, which is why I can tackle the creation, correction and maintenance of this list in my spare time.
