Henderson, Alice H.
Henderson, Donald Gene
Carl Maria von Weber : a guide to research
New York: Garland, 1990, 385 p.

This is what Donald Gene Henderson had to say:

Claims that writers on Weber have tended to concentrate on his historical significance and wide range of accomplishments rather than closely focused examinations of his music. Attempts to penetrate "the substratum of unity" in Weber's instrumental works by concentrating on subtle, unifying elements of thematic variation. Quotes Weber to show that he consciously sought a holistic unity in his compositions.
