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.
