Thank you for this valued advice, David, in response to which I have sent a very similar message to the list you recommend.  I would also welcome suggestions from members of the r-help at r-project list, where appropriate.

Best wishes

I would like to run a cross-classified multilevel binary logistic regression model. The model contains two level 2 random effects variables. These variables are crossed to form a cross-classified design. The model has subjects at level one and these subjects are nested within each of the two level two variables. I understand that the R package lme4 may be suitable for running my model and that there are several published books on running mixed models in R. If a list member is able to kindly recommend whether one of these books is particularly helpful in helping less experienced R users fully understand how to use this (or an alternative) program specifically for the model I have outlined above, I would be most grateful for recommendations.

You would get the widest and most knowledgeable audience for this question at the MixedModels mailing list.
