DEAN, Roger [2009]: The Oxford Handbook of Computer Music (Oxford Handbooks in Music)
Oxford University Press, USA. ISBN: 0195331613
For those who wanted to learn deeply via a syncretic reference that amalgamate the very different tendencies on electronic and computer music, congratulations. Since 2009 Oxford University Press has released a wonderful monography, The Oxford Handbook of Computer Music.

This is about 600 pages full of content on the subject, which is extensively dealt from very constrastive viewpoints, conforming a sort of caleidoscope picked up around five large tendencies: the historical insight on computer music; the music itself; the performative modes; cognition and computation of computer music, and cultural and educational issues.
The book was co-written, edited and coordinated by Roger T. Dean with the contribution of around 30 personalities of the computer music world.
