Here are a few Daito Ryu books that give some history of this particular Ryu. There isn't too much in English that I know of. Remember that everyone has a bias.

Daito-Ryu Aikibudo: History & Technique Book by Antonino Certa

http://www.budovideos.com/shop/customer/product.php?productid=23778&cat=283&page=1


Discovering Aiki: My 20 Years with Yukiyoshi Sagawa Book by Tatsuo Kimura (this is almost completly Japanese, I haven't read it, only flipped through it.)

http://www.budovideos.com/shop/customer/product.php?productid=22067&cat=283&page=1

Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu by Stanley Pranin (Pretty informative book, and probably the best one currently availible in English.)

http://www.aikidojournal.com/catalog/productdetails.php?code=dtr

Books about koryu (old school) JMA in general:

Koryu Bujutsu: Classical Warrior Traditions of Japan (in 3 volumes) by Dianne Skoss

http://www.fightingarts.com/estore/catalog_books_classical.shtml

And check out anything my Donn Draeger, I know he talks about DRAJJ in Modern Budo and Bujutsu.

Anyone have anything else I've missed?

Kondo's book:

http://www.aikidojournal.com/catalog/productdetails?code=kondo01

and the "Hidden Roots of Aikido" by Omiya, a Daito-ryu practitioner with some sort of connection to the Kansai based Daito-ryu groups, the largest of which is the Takumakai. Despite the title it is a Daito-ryu book.

I'd steer people to videos as well. There are lots to be found by the various different branches at:
