Milton Stricker would also be a good choice.

Is this the first monograph on Peters? If there are others, could someone list them please?

Personally I'd rather see the actual architectural designs rather than the box projects but I guess this is a start.

Craig, I'd suggest this issue of OA+D, but it is sold out:
http://www.oadarchives.com/product/journal-oa-d-5-1

I bought one around New Year's Day. It focuses on WWP's period of independence in the 1930's between being kicked out of the Fellowship for having a relationship with Svetlana Hinzenburg Wright and his and Svetlana's return a couple of years later following their wedding. Peters studied and passed the licensure exam and did very competent work and some thoughtful and unique takes on the Usonian houses in this independent period.

Thanks for the heads up. So sorry I missed this journal. The sample cover plus sample pictures alone reveal the need for a true monograph of his entire career. I will keep searching the secondary market with fingers crossed.
