About this book

The long-awaited second edition of this highly regarded introduction to river forms and processes has been thoroughly revised and updated. excellent job of bringing together important and illustrative works from the literature... The text is clearly written, well organised and easy to follow throughout... I would recommend it as a very good book. -- Journal of Geological Education The text is well organised and very readable, with smooth transitions between topics, a difficult task when trying to be both concise and comprehensive. -- Geographical Review Extremely readable and therefore most suitable as a student textbook... The author provides a summary that is a credit to his ability to assimilate and synthesize, indeed a credit to his authorship... I can thoroughly recommend this book to serious practitioners and students of fluvial geomorphology. It is a very perceptive and well written book -- Australian Geographer Any department teaching or supervising postgraduate courses or research in fluvial geomorphology would be wise to ensure that a copy of this book is in the library, and preferably on the book shelf of the lecturer concerned. -- The South African Geographical Journal This is a welcome and sorely needed update of David Knighton's popular text. There are many new or clarified illustrations, including photographs. The new typesetting is a distinct improvement...the index is more readable and slightly fuller..In all, the book is clearly a significant contribution to teaching textbooks...that should inspire many new students. -- Geojournal
