Condition: Used: Very Good
Comment: Cambridge University Press 2014 hardcover, 388 pages. Actually new and unused. I consider the book to be in very condition, but despite this it is stamped "DAMAGED" inside. I can only assume this relates to a couple of minor imperfections - light bumps to the bottom corners of the cover plus some scratches to the cover.

Product description

Review

'Mike Johnson and Simon Harley have produced a book that provides an overview of orogenic research and an introduction to the physico-chemical properties of mountain belts. Both are leading authorities in their fields and their excellent understanding of the issues involved comes through in the clearly-structured text … this book deserves to be widely read.' Geoscientist

'… this book offers plenty of food for thought … would be a useful addition to the library of a geologist desiring an overview of the diverse array of topics associated with modern approaches to mountain building and orogenic tectonics.' Rebecca A. Jamieson, Elements

'Logical arrangement, [an] attractive narrative style that leads [the] reader through [the] complex topic of the formation of mountains without weariness, legible and very well prepared illustrations [make] this volume … important … for geologists, geophysicists, petrologists and geochemists.' Marek Lewandowski, Pure and Applied Geophysics

'… a very fresh look at the problems of orogenesis. It can serve as an ultimate reference for those who are specialized in studies of this phenomenon … very important for the professionals as an exceptional (and updated!) synthesis. … an excellent gift for all university lecturers in tectonics, petrology, and general geology.' Zentralblatt für Geologie und Paläontologie

Book Description

Providing a valuable introduction to the processes that form mountain belts, this book summarises research in this fast-moving field for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of structural geology, plate tectonics and geodynamics, and academics and researchers working in related fields including petrology geochemistry and sedimentology.
