Dear Ilja, Katarzyna and typologists,

I think I am in a position to recommend the dissertation by Raina Heaton, recently highly commended by the ALT Greenberg Award jury, as the most comprehensive source of information on antipassive to date. It can be downloaded here: https://www.academia.edu/32690613/A_typology_of_antipassives_with_special_reference_to_Mayan

Best regards,
