The definitive reference is Donald Knuth's books - one of which is 
dedicated to sorting and searching.

However mere mortals sometimes find them a bit heavy going, in 
which case try Jon Bentleys Programming Pearls and 
More Programming Pearls - One at least gives several 
sorting algorithms in increasing efficiency.

IMHO They are both must have books for any programmer...
