Chapters end with suggestions for further listening, critical thinking questions, key terms and suggestions for further reading. This edition has listening examples that include gabrieli, Amy Beach, Charles Ives, Dizzy Gillespie and James DeMars, as well as examples from India, Africa, Turkey, Islam, North America and the Far East.
