9780571048588: Introducing Geology

Professor Ager's book is intended to introduce geology to the educated reader, and takes the form of a simplified and nontechnical account of what has been discovered about the evolution, through hundreds pf millions of years, of that part of the earth's crust which is now Britain. The basic principles of geology are introduced as they fit into the story, and other parts of the world are discussed when they illustrate special points.
For this second edition Professor Ager has thoroughly revised his text and many of the figures; and he has added five new figures and two new plates.
This extremely readable book at last provides would-be geologists both amateur and professional with an elementary introduction to stratiography ... it will certainly interest the general reader as much as the intending scientist . . . The human impact of geology is well brought out and the author has a refreshing turn of humour . . . the book will take its place among the classics of elementary geology.' Peter Stubbs in New Scientist
