About this book

Presents the findings of the European Geotraverse (EGT), - the EGT is a unique study of the tectonic evolution of the continent of Europe, and the first comprehensive cross section of the continental lithosphere.

'There are many good things to say about this book. It is beautifully produced. The figures and maps are clearly drawn ... The whole book is astonishingly coherent.' Journal of Structural Geology ' ... an authoritative account ... will be of benefit to a wide range of readers from those with a general interest in physical geography of Europe to those researching the subject in depth.' The Geographical Journal ' ... this is a successful presentation of an ambitious continent-wide project of outstanding merit. I am astonished at the value offered not least for the huge amount of data provided. I fully expect this to be a best seller - it certainly deserves to be.' Episodes Vol 16 No 3
