6. Conclusion: Milhaud's 'Total Entity'.
After 1940, Milhaud exerted important influence as a composer and teacher in the United States as well as in his native France. It is fitting, therefore, that this book develops recent analytical techniques and historical perspectives from North America and Europe, and will be of value to scholars and students of twentieth-century music on both sides.
