Synopsis: Collision between Australia and SE Asia began in the Early Miocene and reduced the former wide ocean between them to a complex passage which connects the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Today, the Indonesian Throughflow passes through this gateway and plays an important role in global thermohaline flow, and the region around it contains the maximum global diversity for many marine and terrestrial organisms. Reconstruction of this geologically complex region is essential for understanding its role in oceanic and atmospheric circulation, climate impacts, and the origin of its biodiversity.

The papers in this volume discuss the Palaeozoic to Cenozoic geological background to Australia and SE Asia collision, and provide the background for accounts of the modern Indonesian Throughflow, oceanographic changes since the Neogene, and aspects of the regions climate history.

The Geological Society of London

Founded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society in the world, and one of the largest publishers in the Earth sciences.

The Society publishes a wide range of high-quality peer-reviewed titles for academics and professionals working in the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable international reputation for the quality of its work.

The many areas in which we publish in include:

-Petroleum geology
-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics
-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology
-Volcanology, magmatic studies and geochemistry
-Remote sensing
-History of geology
-Regional geology guides

Review: ..................all of the papers in GSSP represent quality studies, and the editors should be commended for shepherding them to press. In summary, those workers actively researching the geology and tectonics of SE Asia ought to buy the Hall-Cottam-Wilson volume. For those who are less committed (the book costs UKú100 for Geological Society Members, UKú200 for the rest of us), then a request for your institute/company to purchase a library copy would be the next best thing. In making such a proposal, it would be worthwhile to point out that the key images in many of the papers have been produced in colour (funded largely by Niko Resources [Indonesia]), thereby making the volume especially useful and attractive. --Review ByJason R Ali, Department of Earth Sciences, University of Hong Kong
