Google "rose hybridizers", go to the association's web page and order the booklet.

Ken Druse has a general book on propagation, "Making More Plants", I've been meaning to get it but haven't yet.

If you have a fast internet access (or have it through work or a library), use the google, book, full text search engine and search for some of the classic rose texts:
Hibberd, Shirley, 1884, The Rose Book
Rivers, Thomas, Rose Amateur's Guide
Buist Roses
Paul, Roses
Use the search engine for each book for propagation, for cuttings, for rootstocks, and enjoy.
