Throughout history, one can make connections to sustainability through the interpretation of a simple three-legged stool. Each leg represents a tenet of sustainability: environmental resilience, economic responsibility, social justice. In order for the stool to be stable, each leg must be the same length; if one or more legs is shorter than the others, the stool will wobble, becoming unstable. This is a familiar scenario throughout history, the Earth's inhabitants taking advantage of the environment and each other for economic gain.

An Introduction to Art Music takes readers through the world of art music–AKA “classical” music–from basic terminology to periods, styles and composers. Written by a music educator rather than a musicologist, it presents information in a way that is accessible to the novice learner but should also be interesting to the more experienced music listener. Music is presented within a larger context: every section of the chronology begins with an introduction to what is happening in the world, to major artists of the time, and to literary and artistic movements.
