This is a really good recent interview with Eric Helms on training for muscle and strength:

Topics include:
- Mechanisms of muscle growth (mechanical tension, metabolic stress and muscle damage)
- Periodization for maximizing training adaptations
- Training volume, intensity and frequency for building muscle
- Whether strength leads to hypertrophy or hypertrophy leads to strength
- The use of single-joint exercises for strength and muscle
- Inter-set rest periods
- The biggest training mistake people make when trying to build muscle
