Frith, Uta (1991) Autism and Asperger syndrome
Frith, Uta (1991) "Autism and Asperger syndrome". Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press.
This is the classic text that opened the spectrum up to people who did not exhibit the strrict criteria of Kanner autism. Especially important is the first published translation into English of Hans Asperger's 1944) paper on "'Autistic psychopathy' in childhood", translated and annotated by Uta Frith. (It must be noted that 'psychopathy' is meant in its strict sense as a 'disorder of the psyche', and not psychopathy / sociopathy in the modern sense).
