Review: Studying Music History: Learning, Reasoning, and Writing About Music History and Literature (2nd Edition)User Review - Goodreads
This is one of the best books I've encountered for studying and grasping something as vast as the history of western music. I highly recommend it for anyone who needs to cram music history into their head in a short period of time.. it gives you a very good framework to start with.
