About the Author:

John Pethick is lecturer in physical geography at the University of Hull.


The book is well-written in an easy and often humorous style. The maps and diagrams are clear and precise. The verdict must be that this book is the best available synthesis at undergraduate level of coastal geomorphology and thus it should be widely read. Its competitive pricing and clear style should ensure its popularity with students of both general and coastal geomorphology.

... this fine new paperback is a welcome addition to the very few good textbooks presently available that deal with coastal geomorphology.
