The text was decent (although, I hated the two classes it was for because the professor was a pain.) Sometimes the text did conflict with known fact and even those I'd looked up myself. When that occurs you cannot be too confident about the text as a whole and I found myself doubting numerous passages in the text. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0697293793, Hardcover)

Stolba offers a chronological presentation of the sweep of Western music and its composers, beginning with the music of antiquity and proceeding to the 20th Century. Since any discussion of the evolution of music is not complete without also discussing events that influenced that evolution, this comprehensive text integrates information about historical periods, cultures, and artistic movements. Fine art reproductions, detailed maps and chronologies, newly designed in this edition, also help students place the musical discussions in their cultural, geographical, and historical contexts. Along with its newly recorded CD sets and accompanying 2-volume anthology, The Development of Western Music offers a coordinated presentation of the diverse range of Western music and its composers.
