The Vegetarian Myth actually does a pretty good job. If you don't want to buy it after reading the above review (which is a shame because it's a good read) then just find it at a real bookstore (if you have access to one) and look at it there and look at her footnotes and go seek out the footnotes. There are probably other resources but a quick google search only brought up some news articles that were light on substance, not books, and I didn't look very hard.
