Multigenerational incest: pedigree collapse on the Richter scale

Where could I go to read about the likely health and genetic normality of a person whose father was his grandfather and his great-grandfather?

Googling for "human inbreeding" and "linebreeding" produces a few germane links about the benignity of limited cousin marriage in a society, but that's about all.  I know the internet too well to try wading through a search involving "incest."  Additionally, book recommendations are appreciated.  (I already am looking for one author and one book title, The Red Lamp of Incest.)

Thanks for your help!
