The essence of the book is a critical review of the evidence regarding the nature of the "Earth Engine", the drive mechanism for mountain building, volcanism, plutonic activity, earthquakes and continental drift. The review encompasses geophysical, geochemical and petrologic data, as well as the broad aspect of Earth history. Principal results include a series of questions regarding fundamentals of the plate tectonics theory and the development of an alternative geodynamic model. This book will be of special interest to geophysicists, petrologists, mineralogists, geochemists and volcanologists.

The book is interesting, sometimes challenging. It begs us to try to set aside the notions and biases we may have regarding this issue and read it on its own merits. The principal message is that plate tectonic theory might be accepted by many as a fundamental concept; a law of nature. We are reminded that perhaps it should not be.
