The primary focus of this book is accent which Lester argues is one of the major aspects of rhythm. The central question is not whether a note or event (rest point in time) is accented but how it is accented. This change of focus allows for the first time a thorough investigation into the factors that give rise to accent the relative importance of these factors in creating accentuation the way accents are perceived the way meter arises and the limits of metric organization on higher levels of structure.
