About this book

A comprehensive introduction, exploring the Earth as a complex, active, natural phenomenon and stressing the interconnections between the core geological concepts and their importance in human terms.

As an A Level course textbook, Geoscience has much to recommend it. The level of detail is good and at an appreopriate level, and the case studies are interesting. The British slant to to the illustrative examples is a bonus. -- B Oeppen 20000801
