Presents digital maps of all formerly glaciated parts of Europe and provides up-to-date reviews of Pleistocene glacial histories. Also contains extensive lists of references to the relevant literature.

It is necessary to stress in here that the book, together with the enclosed CD, exceptional work. Its size and scope give it an outstanding value as an unforgettable archive for use in future studies. The editors are to be sincerely congratulated. -Quaternary Science Reviews, 2006 "Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers." -CHOICE, 2005 "Should be considered as a valuable treasure. Authors, editors and the publisher should be proud of it. It is certainly worth its price." -Journal of Sedimentary Research, 2005 "The three volumes are fantastic with a wealth of information and the editors need due acknowledgement for bringing this monomental task to such a fine conclusion." -Boreas, 2005
