 Understanding Agent Systems  
This book, by Inverno, M. and Luck, M., presents a formal approach to dealing with agents and agent systems. The framework provides precise and unambiguous meanings for common concepts and terms for agent systems, allows for the description of alternative agent models and architectures, and serves as a foundation for subsequent development of increasingly refined agent concepts.
The methodology presented takes a very significant step towards organizing and structuring the diverse and disparate landscape of agent-based systems by applying formal methods to develop a defining and encompassing agent framework.

 Iterative Software Engineering for Multiagent Systems  
This book by Lind, J. presents one of the first attempts to develop a methodology for a broad class of agent-based systems. It provides a clear introduction to the key issues in the field of agent-oriented software engineering and a comprehensive overview of the state of the art.
