The \bibdata command is "automagically generated" when runing *LaTeX*  
on your source Horwich.tex, PROVIDED it contains

\bibliography{<name of your bib file(s), without the .bib extension>}

just in the place where you intend the bibliography to be typeset.

You can list several .bib files, separated by commas.
