From the Publisher:

This process-oriented text combines optical mineralogy with petrography and petrology. It covers all rock types. Moving away from the systematic treatment of rock groups, the text focuses on the study of behavior of rocks in response to geological processes. In addition to covering common igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks, the text examines weathered, hydrothermally altered, and low-temperature precipitative and deformed rocks, thus covering all rock types that relate to the fields of hydrogeology, environmental geology, economic geology, neotectonics, earth science, seismology, and geologic engineering. The first part of the text covers optical mineralogy for students who have no background in the use of a petrographic microscope before examining petrographic hand specimen and thin section data. Subsequent parts of the text cover the anatomy of rocks, the classification of rocks, fundamental processes of rock formation, and description and interpretation of rocks grouped by processes and their formation.
