Book News
Provides an accessible but scientifically rigorous treatment of the Earth's geology. The ten chapters cover topics including continental drift; Earth history; convection currents; crustal plates; the development of midocean ridges, deep-sea trenches, and mountains; the rock cycle; tectonics and life; and tectonics in the solar system. Intended for general readers, the volume eschews the textbook's usual pedagogical features such as chapter summaries and test questions. Updates the 1992 edition with ample new (b&w) photographs, line illustrations, and chapter text. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
