Hive mind, will you steer me toward a decent account of the Lambert Simnel affair?

Hive mind, will you steer me toward a decent account of the Lambert Simnel affair? I am looking for information that is a bit longer and more authoritative than what the wikipedia article or tudorhistory.org has to offer. Web sources are fine, as are shorter novels / history books, provided that they are easily obtainable (cheap), reasonably accurate, and in-depth without being overwhelming.

Suikei Kozo to Ryuiki what?

How do I format the citation information for this Japanese journal article? I've found a journal article that I want to cite in a paper, but I can't determine the journal's name. The index page seems to claim the journal title is "Suikei Kozo to Ryuiki Dotai ni Motozuku Mizu, Dosha Ryushutsu Kiko to Saigai Kankyo ni kansuru Kenkyu Heisei", which seems too long and also appears to not translate (so I can't figure out if it's shortenable).

Lots of fiddly and not-so-fiddly data for research: Is OLAP my answer?

Is OLAP my answer? Someone on a stats listserve I subscribe to mentioned OLAP in passing as an approach for managing lots of smaller data tables in a sane/integrated way. I've tried googling around and reading the info on various OLAP/BI project pages. I've since looked briefly at the Pentaho suite (Mondrian, and what was Kettle et al), JasperIntelligence, SpagoBI, and Palo OLAP...briefly only because I'm not quite that technically adept to see for sure how they work and whether these types of applications do what I want them to, given that I'm not coming from what I imagine a "typical" BI user's perspective/needs might be. At this point, my head is spinning a bit. [more inside]
