Review:


"This text is a great achievement and fills a large gap in textbooks for film music courses. There aren't any other textbooks that even approach its breadth and level of sophistication."-Matthew McDonald, Northeastern University


"It's really impressive in scope and style-a total rethinking of the approach to the film music course, with excellent illustrations and background research. Applause to everybody involved."-Donald Meyer, Lake Forest College


"I am very impressed with this book and its depth of coverage; it is by far the most thoughtful of the film music texts that I have encountered."-J. Drew Stephen, The University of Texas at San Antonio
