About this book

This text explains the essential attributes of concepts that have arisen since 1973 in structural geology and tectonics. Deformational and tectonic processes and relationships on all scales are discussed. Site or time specific assemblages are not emphasized with the exceptions of Archaean tectonics and neotectonics. The nomenclature that has proliferated as a result of the need to express recent ideas is highlighted.
