About 2/3rds of the way down on this page http://www.bushfarms.com/xstar.htm Michael Bush lists some excellent queen rearing books.  I've heard that the two by Jay Smith are particularly well done.

Marla Spivak teaches a great course on queen rearing using the Doolittle method at the Univ of Minnesota.  I took it this year and it really was a great course.  It just does cover in detail the Doolittle method though, not other methods . . . mainly because they have used it exclusively for their research and "it works".

You can get the course manual and a video

I purchased the Marla Spivak course manual and a video and it was money well spent. A must buy on your short list.

"Scientific Queen Rearing" by H. Laidlaw.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

BEEMATERS  and  BEE SOURCE can teach you all you need to make queens.
I've got all the books and i fine  BEEMATERS  and  BEE SOURCE  has  teach ed me the most.
You will learn raising queen on a small scale is fairly easy.
I made  6 this year  and it's realy cool to make your frist one.
GOOD LUCK.

If you go to my site and either go down to "Classic Beekeeping Books" or "Queen Rearing", you can find links to many old classic queen rearing books you can read online for free.
