Mezcal in the Global Spirits Market: Unrivalled Complexity, Innumerable Nuances,by Alvin Starkman

The only English language book which discusses why mezcal has the potential to unseat tequila and compete with spirits like scotch whisky, largely because of the number of nuances that can be achieved through its distillation.  The book deals with terroir, recipes passed down through generations, agave species and differences in distillation processes, all impacting aroma and flavor.  Available locally in Oaxaca.
