Books with more than one author

Where books have more than one author, the names of all should be included in the reference list entry. The name of the second and subsequent authors should be written in CAPITALS like the first but with initials preceding the surname. If there are two names, they should be separated with '&', rather than 'and' as it is shorter. Further names should be separated with commas.
