This thesis was an attempt to classify, analyze, and summarize a selected, finite body of acquisition and contracting literature. The primary objective of this thesis was to apply an existing taxonomy to the complete library of a publication that is representative of contracting literature. Analysis of the results of this classification effort provided conclusive information about focal points and trends in the literature and the evolution of the contracting discipline. A secondary objective of this thesis was to evaluate the effectiveness and usefulness of the taxonomy used to classify the literature. This evaluation included a recommendation for improving the taxonomy. The final objective of this thesis was to compile an annotated bibliography of all the articles printed in this publication. Each bibliography included a summary of how the article was classified after applying the taxonomy
