In addition to the Computer Music Tutorial mentioned earlier, I would 

Computer Music: Synthesis, Composition, and Performance by; Charles Dodge

and Computer Sound Design: Synthesis Techniques and Programming; by Eduardo 

Roads is a perhaps bit more comprehensive than either of these, as it 
includes a great deal more historical information in addition to the 
technical, but a search back through the list archives for these 
titles/authors should reveal some debate over the strengths of each. (Maybe 
not Miranda.  I don't remember much mention of his book, but Dodge and 
Roads have been discussed many times.)  All make great gifts.

Take care,
