Most general astronomy texts and books on stellar variability RCB stars, but only briefly. For example:

Hoffmeister C, Richter G, Wenzel W 1985, Variable Stars (Springer-Verlag: Berlin Heidelberg New York Tokyo)

In contrast, the academic literature is extensive and this article can only provide a few pointers. A recent and comprehensive review provides many important references:

Clayton G C 1996, The R Coronae Borealis Stars Publs. Astr. Soc. Pac. 108 225-241

A conference held in 1995 was devoted to hydrogen-deficient stars in general. Its proceedings contain many excellent reviews covering recent work on RCBs and related objects:
