2.10 Going further
In this brief review of pulsar astronomy, we have only skimmed the surface of many topics which are
covered more thoroughly elsewhere. Two recent textbooks, Pulsar Astronomy  and Handbook
of Pulsar Astronomy , cover the literature and techniques and provide excellent further
reading. The morphological properties of pulsars have recently been comprehensively discussed in
two recent reviews [286, 280]. Those wishing to approach the subject from a more theoretical
viewpoint are advised to read The Theory of Neutron Star Magnetospheres  and The Physics
of the Pulsar Magnetosphere . Our summary of evolutionary aspects serves merely as a
primer to the vast body of literature available. Further insights can be found from more detailed
reviews [33, 251, 292].
Pulsar resources available on the Internet are continually becoming more extensive and useful. A good
starting point for pulsar-surfers is the Handbook of Pulsar Astronomy website , as well as the pages
maintained at Arecibo , Berkeley , Bonn , Cagliari , Jodrell Bank ,
Princeton , Swinburne , UBC  and Sydney .
