Review:

`Volcanic Successions: Modern and Ancient, quite apart from its thorough descriptions of volcanic deposits, takes an original approach in using the method of facies and analysis and interpretation derived from sedimentology to integrate studies of both ancient and modern volcanic activity. The resulting text, a remarkable achievement by any criterion, will remain the standard work on the subject for a long time to come.'
