Maurice Casey discussed the material concerning Son of Man in ancient Jewish 
and Christian literature in 'Son of Man', SPCK, 1979.  In addition to the 
conventional material on the son of man,  e.g.  Daniel,  1 Enoch,  NT, 
Patristics,  etc there is also a chapter on the much neglected Syrian 
tradition.  Casey has also written several articles on the subject which are 
worth reading e.g.  'General,  Generic,  and Indefinite:  Some Aspects of 
the Son of Man Problem'  JSNT,  1987,  which mainly discusses Aramaic 
reconstructions of Jesus' sayings,  and a dicussion on the state of son of 
man scholarship in 'Method in our Madness and Madness in their Methods'.  
The latter was written c.  1995 but I forget which journal:  I will find out 

I hope this will be of some use.
