    You'll want a book that covers dense stars like:

    I'd also suggest picking one or more representative white dwarf stars and concentrate on them, you thesis will thus be more focussed.

    You may also find Dr. Jay Holberg's book Sirius: The Brightest Diamond in the Night Sky of value. He's an expert on white dwarfs, and the Sirius system has the nearest white dwarf of all--although it was not the first one to be found, contrary to what you'll read in a lot of places.
