Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

This thorough revision of a classic handbook is designed primarily as a guide for students writing papers or theses on musical subjects, but is useful for anyone writing about music for publication. It deals with the mechanics of scholarly writing, citation and documentation, as well as the nuts and bolts of punctuation and abbreviation. But it is also a sensible guide to good writing. In this edition, Mark A. Radice has taken into account all the technological changes that have transformed writing and publishing while preserving Irvine's voice. He has also added a new section on incorporating music examples in a written text.

Synopsis:

It deals with the mechanics of scholarly writing, citation, and documentation, as well as the nuts and bolts of punctuation and abbreviation. But it is also a sensible guide to good writing. Irvine presents "rules, " conveniently numbered, which he light-heartedly suggests might be taken "as one-a-day capsules"; in fact, his pithy recommendations have something of the elegance of Strunk and White's Elements of Style, albeit with a musical focus.
