About this Item

1981. Harper and Row. First. Book: Near Fine, illustrated colour cover. 11.5x8.5. 612pp. End paper maps. Illustrated with numerous in-text figures and colour plates. Modern geology, deriving much of its substance from studies of marine geology and plate tectonics, is a product of the past three decades and has been widely recogised as a major scientific revolution. The awesome power of plate tectonics to explain the elements of global crustal geology under a unified and coherent theory is a theme the author has endeavoured to develop throughout this book. The author has made a special effort to explain geology in clear and simple language, avoiding mathematics and using elementary chemistry sparingly. Bookseller Inventory # 185347
