The book is a good summary but is dated, since it was last printed in the early 90's. It is hard to find a good Contemporary Trends book, particularly for graduate students, but a new one just came out this fall (Abeles) and I would recommend looking at that one first.

Format: Hardcover
This book was the textbook for one of our classes in music education. I think it's very poor because it's so unintelligent (thin) and boring and, compared to texts we use in other music courses (e.g. music history), it's unscholarly and sloppy. For example, this book repeats a whole pile of dead information that any undergrad can find in MENC blurbs and MENC 'propaganda'. I think Mark must be paid as a cheerleader for MENC. Being forced to read this book is like being forced to read a cereal box. And look at his discussion of 'philosophy' in this book; Mark thinks he's a scholar, but he is so obvioulsy clueless and biased. One more thing --- even I can find all sorts of typos and errors in the BIB and I'm just a senior!! The bottom line for me and my classmates is this: a poor author + a poor editor = a lousy book!! We want our money back!!

This book was used as a textbook but it can also be used as a reference book. This book has information regarding various topics such as; Historical Foundations of Music Education, Pivotal Events of the Contemporary Era, Advocacy, Music Education Methods........
