This book focuses on Middle American terranes in which flat-slab subduction appears to have been an important mechanism for orogenic development at various times since the late Mesoproterozoic: at 1 Ga, the Paleozoic, to the Cenozoic. It relates the evolution of the Middle American terranes over the past billion years to global scale events. It also examines the supercontinents, Rodinia and Pangea, the geometry of their amalgamation and breakup, and the processes responsible.
