Linguistic LingField(s):  Syntax

Query:   Hi!
I am writing a paper on the transformational account of monotransitive passive constructions. I've been studying two books on Syntax and have unfortunately failed to find a comprehensive and clear to me description of this particular transformation: ''Transformational Syntax, A Student's Guide to Chomsky's Extended Standard Theory'' by Andrew Radford and ''Syntactic Theory, a Unified Approach'' by Robert Borsley. My question is quite simple: How does this transformation of monotransitive passives occur within transformational grammar?
Thank you for your time and consideration of my question!
