From the Back Cover:

From modulation to twentieth-century serial composition, this companion volume to ELEMENTARY HARMONY, Fifth Edition completes the study of eighteenth-century and nineteenth-century harmony.

ADVANCED HARMONY, Fifth Edition also includes step-by-step suggestions for analysis of seemingly difficult harmonic problems and, in twentieth-century music, detailed instruction in the use and analysis of the twelve-tone method of music composition.
