Bret Willmott has put together one of the best, interesting and most detailed, easy to read, and helpful guides to the study of polyrhythm in harmony with his 240 page book, TIME FOR THE FUTURE. For instance, examine page 34 concerning strong shuffle grooves, or the section on polymeters over 3/4 on pages 126 - 127.
Please check out the excellent writing and information given on melodic and harmonic considerations starting on page 217. Fact upon useful fact is shared by the author with the reader through word and example.
