The Second Edition of Earth Structure: An Introduction to Structural Geology and Tectonics takes a balanced approach to the subject—emphasizing links between structural features at all scales (microscopic, hand-specimen, outcrop, mountain-range) and deformation processes.Earth Structure shows how assemblages of structures relate to different geological settings in the context of plate tectonics. Chapters are self-contained modules that can be arranged in various sequences depending on instructor preference, and the book uses a conversational writing style, employing familiar analogies and field examples. Mathematical analysis, where used in the book, is kept at a basic level.

For the Second Edition of Earth Structure: An Introduction to Structural Geology and Tectonics, the authors have heavily revised each chapter while preserving the overall structure of the First Edition.The Second Edition also benefits from new artwork that clearly illustrates complex concepts.
Ben A. van der Pluijm is Professor of Geological Sciences and Professor of the Environment at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He is (co-)author of more than 120 research articles and editor/board member of several international journals. His research focuses on brittle and ductile faults, crustal architecture of collisional belts, intraplate deformation, microstructures and textures, and geochronology, with main field areas in North America, South America and Europe. In addition to teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in Geological Sciences, he coordinates Michigan’s interdisciplinary Global Change Curriculum and is involved with various technology-supported educational initiatives.
Stephen Marshak is Professor of Geology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where he is also the Director of the School of Earth, Society, and Environment. He holds an AB from Cornell University, an MS from the University of Arizona, and a PhD from Columbia University. Steve’s research interests lie in structural geology and tectonics. This work has taken him into the field on multiple continents. He has also won his college’s and university’s highest teaching awards. In addition to research papers and Earth: Portrait of a Planet, Steve has authored Essentials of Geology; and has co-authored Laboratory Manual for Introductory Geology; Earth Structure: An Introduction to Structural Geology and Tectonics; and Basic Methods of Structural Geology.
