Douglass Seaton is Warren D. Allen Professor of Music at The Florida State University.
"Seaton's approach beautifully addresses the issue of music history's 'relevance, ' contributing to students' wider understanding of the world and encouraging them to think critically about ways in which their own ideas and cultures shape them as musical performers and listeners."--Angela Mariani, from a review in Journal of Music History Pedagogy
"Seaton's writing style is very fine--elegant and clear--an excellent model. . . . It really is interesting to read, and it leaves a lot of room for the instructor to choose the listening selections."--Carol Padgham Albrecht, University of Idaho
"I enjoy the flexibility that this book allows in selecting which pieces to use in and out of class, whether in an existing anthology, online, in a course-pack, or in the library. . . . This is an outstanding textbook, and the only one I feel comfortable asking my students to purchase. "--Jay Grymes, University of North Carolina-Charlotte
"When I was reading this text, it was as if I were reading a new novel for my own pleasure. The book is beautifully written, clear, and concise. . . . Though Seaton's writing is as scholarly as any I've read, it is immediately readable, logical, and utterly enjoyable."--Virginia Boaz, East Texas Baptist University
