Suggestions for DB Textbook

Computer Science Filter: Anyone have any suggestions for a Database text book. I am teaching a course title Database Technology next semester. The previous professor used a textbook that was "MS Access"-heavy. Any suggestions for a textbook that covers Database Technology, meets course description (below) and isn't MS-Dependent?
I have no problem using MS Access, just don't want to depend on it.

This course studies the design and implementation of relational databases. Entity-relationship (E-R) diagrams and other design techniques are covered and students get practical experience with their use. SQL programming techniques are also used to build, update, query, and generate reports from databases. XML techniques are also examined.
