This book gives you what you need to fight both radical modernists and also antiquarians (you know, the people who say that liturgy should be done always as it was done on August 8, 1955...). In other words, liturgy does develop, but organically, gradually.
If you care about Lex Orendi, you need to read this book and have it in your reference library.
It gave me a deeper appreciation for the expectations of at least some liturgical reformers prior to the 1960s about the direction reform of the liturgy would move. Also helpful to me was the reminder that active participation meant different things to different people, but originally meant something along the lines of just getting folks to pay attention.
The info about the reforms of the divine office was all new to me, but I'm by no means an expert.
It was convincing enough to convince empathize with those who see liturgy as something that changes but that should not be radically altered.
