Response to: What is a dependency again?
Apologies to O'Reilly for recommending a competitor's book, but Agile Software Development, Principles, Patterns, and Practices by Robert C. Martin (aka "Uncle Bob") has a very good section on the topic of dependencies. His name for the concept, the "Dependency-Inversion Principle", is less common than "Inversion of Control" (IoC) or "Dependency Injection", but they all deal with the same issue.
