Comparing agile and traditional project management

If I were writing an academic paper comparing traditional and agile software development/project management methods I would start my literature review with some of these.  Any suggestions for where to extend it?

I'd also need to understand that the waterfall model is not really practiced. It’s just a straw man for an argument.

I'd ask myself,
  • What are the common characteristics of real world ‘traditional project management’?
  • What divergences do we have to the agile manifesto content?
  • How are the ‘agile methods’ different?
