Organized chiefly around music themes and music in culture rather than the basic style periods of Western art music, CROSSOADS IN MUSIC provides a basic introduction to music that integrates and explores the similarities among Classical music, popular music, and world music. A user-friendly text designed for non-majors, the book is comprised of 37 brief, topical chapters that keep students interested in and focused on specific ideas. The package (text and audio CD set) is one of the most inexpensive on the market.

"I like the serious effort to link musical examples and styles with historical and cultural background. ...Better than most, it avoids the common mistake of giving only 'the West' a history."
"I find the writing style to be extremely refreshing. Basically I'm sold! This book seeks to view the discipline of music from a liberal arts environment - it's a 'real world' approach that would make sense to a non-music major."
"Overall, this is a terrific approach, well written, with outstanding repertoire from the broadest possible scope of both Western and World musics. I enjoyed reading it, and I look forward to the finished product!"
