A "primer" rather than a survey this text offers exceptionally clear, simple explanations of basic theoretical concepts for the post-tonal music of the twentieth century.
Emphasizing "hands-on" contact with the music through playing, singing, listening, and analyzing it provides six chapters on theory, each illustrated with musical examples and fully worked-out analyses, all drawn largely from the classical pre-war repertoire by Schoenberg, Stravinsky, Bartok, Berg, and Webern.
He introduces it in context and perhaps most significantly of all uses language that's so transparent that merely to follow his descriptions, explanations and illustrations carefully is to understand each aspect of the theory under consideration.

Follow us on. Although surprisingly short for the subject matter, at under pages, this book is remarkably effective and can safely be recommended as one of the best of only a handful of standard works on the subject. Given the complexity of the theoretical underpinnings of music in the last hundred years, to cover so much so well in so little space means that such a book is either going to be superficial and highly unsatisfactory; or is an expert distillation by someone so familiar with and so confident in exposing and explaining their subject matter to a wide audience that its brevity and focus work admirably. Introduction to Post-Tonal Theory is squarely in the latter category. The book is divided into six carefully-scoped chapters of roughly 30 pages each.
