Generalized linear models (GLMs) extend linear models to accommodate both non-normal response distributions and transformations to linearity. (We assume that Chapter 6 has been read before this chapter.) The essay by Firth (1991) gives a good introduction to GLMs; the comprehensive reference is McCullagh & Nelder (1989).
