[R] reference on permutation test

It's always worthwhile to look at the articles by Pitman (and maybe the
textbook by Fisher, if you have access to it); Welch is a nice paper,
too, but might be pretty technical to "learn" about the area. I don't
know any of the textbooks except Edgington (which is in its 4th edition
now with co-author P Onghena), a book I can wholeheartedly recommend.
The authors explain the basic concepts in a way that should even be
accessible to non-statisticians, I believe. They also cover a lot of
special cases, and give exhaustive theoretical background for those
interested (you can easily skip these parts if you are not). It goes
along with a CD with some programs to run these test, though I did not
use it so far -- you can do it yourself in R, of course :-) I am not
sure whether they cover any other resampling methods at all, but if so,
only very briefly, so you'd need another reference for that. Efron &
Tibshirani is a classical, while I heard some people recommending
Davison & Hinkley -- I didn't find the time yet to look more closely
into the latter.
Just my 2 cents,
