Roger Peng has some objected oriented documentation
at his site as part of a powerpoint presentation.
There is also some discussion at the end of John Fox's CAR book, I think in the appendix. MASS has some also
but I forget the chapter in MASS that focuses on it. 
I think that all three are useful but the level of detail varies in each.
