Without a doubt, the two best books for the study of Apostolic (Oneness) Pentecostal history are

*David Reed's "In Jesus' Name: The History and Beliefs of Oneness Pentecostals" (2007).

*Talmadge French's "Early Oneness Pentecostalism, G. T. Haywood, and the Interracial Pentecostal Assemblies of the World (1901-1931)" (2014).

Reed—Professor Emeritus of Pastoral Theology and Research Professor at Wycliffe College, Toronto, Canada—offers the best comprehensive look at the roots of Oneness Pentecostalism in Pietism and late 19th-century evangelicalism as well as the formative of years of the new movement between the Azusa revival (1906-07) and the "New Issue" in the Assemblies of God (1914-16). His insights about the influence of William Durham on early Oneness leaders like Frank Ewart, Glenn Cook, Robert McAlister, and Franklin Smalls are original and invaluable. Because of this work, I realize the need to go back and read Durham's published work and periodical articles from 1908 to his untimely death in 1911 and to better address the special challenge of separating later remembrances of Oneness leaders from the contemporary witness of primary documents, especially the abundant, but not always easily accessed, Pentecostal periodical literature of 1900-20. Reed also includes a survey of Oneness teachings under the banner: “The Theology of Oneness Pentecostalism.”

French, an Atlanta pastor and former Bible college instructor, offers an astounding amount of information I have never seen before about the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World—both before and after its embrace of Jesus' name baptism and the "one God" message.

The Book delves much to much in thought which has nothing to do with the subject and is slow, but Reed does seem to give a fair job of reporting most. I think his figures were outdated regarding Oneness Apostolic Pentecostals when he wrote the book, saying there was only about 14 million in the world in 2004 (at copyright of book). The firgure would have been closer to 20-25 million per Talmadge French and is information on Oneness by one who is contacted by Oneness groups from all over the world.
I believe that Reed may miss out on that Oneness do not care to find a historical line, as they are a Theological one to the Bible and early church, when Oneness abounded and Trinitarians were in the Minority as stated by Tertullian and Origen (see their writings AGAINST PRAXEAS by Tertullian chap 3).
Oneness are supported by many sources regarding Jesus name baptism and it being the original formula and by Trinitarians no less.
Theology wise, Oneness can find the scriptures defending a Modalist Monarchian aka Oneness view aka Sabellianism, Praxesism, Noetusism historically.
We view a complete Holiness view for all to follow and believe the church is seperated from the world and not part of it in dress, language, actions.
I recommend the book as a Oneness, picked it up at the PENTECOSTAL PUBLISHING HOUSE UPCI HQ's in 2012.
