Main Question or Discussion Point

Anyone know a good place to read about the Lagrangian or Hamiltonian approach to the equations of motion of classical point particles in Minkowski spacetime? It doesn't have to go very deep into it, but it should at least include a discussion of symmetries and conserved quantities.
