Review:

"Derek Ford and Paul Williams have produced another magisterialoverview of the exciting world karst which should be found in aprominent position on the bookshelf ... . It sets the standardas the definitive guide to karst studies, and should be a highlyuseful source of reference both for those new to karst and forkarst experts for many years to come." (Zeitschrift furGeomorphologie, December 2008)

"The scope of coverage is quite significant and the reference isastounding--it is amazing to see how much material is containedwithin a 562-page monograph." (CHOICE, March 2008)

"This new edition strengthens the book's position as theessential reference in the field. Karst geoscientists will not dareto stray beyond arm's reach of this volume. It is certain to remainthe professional standard for many decades." (Journal of Caveand Karst Studies, August 2007)
