Sri Ramarao,

  The book 'A dialogue on hinduism' by V.N. Gopaladesikan discusses
the issues you mentioned in a Q & A form. It is introductory. It
is published by Visishtadvaita research centre.

  The book 'The philosophy of the vedantasutra' by S.M. Srinivasa Chari,
published by Munshilal Manohardas Publishers, has for its scope the
ascertainment of the philosophy of the brahmasutras, based on the
commentaries of Shankara, Ramanuja, and Madhva. The book favours the
interpretation of Ramanuja, but it certainly highlights the key
differences in the three philosophies. There is also a chapter in the
end dealing with the interpretation of some key upanishad passages.

  The book 'Fundamentals of Visistadvaita' by S. M. Srinivasachari,
published by Motilal Banarsidas, is a detailed exposition of 
visistadvaita philosophy based on a work of Vedantadesika. It contrasts
aspects of this philosophy with advaita and even other schools like
Buddhist, Nyaya, etc. 

best wishes
