    I have found a narrative reading of bootstrap theory: http://www.slac.stanford.edu/spires/find/hep/www?key=1264621 [Broken]. It is dated August 1984.

    arivero -- Thanks for the reference. I was a proponent of Chew's Bootstrap approach, as many were in the 1960s, and published a few bootstrap/dispersion theory papers. But, quarks ruled the day, and bootstrap physics did not like elementary particles.
