Mew edition, with CD-ROM. Contains a large number of photographs and drawings to illustrate the interpretation of small-scale deformation structures in rocks and practical examples of the treatment of data for large-scale interpretations.
From the reviews of the second edition: "This book deals with descriptions and interpretations of small-scale structures in deformed rock, as seen ! through an optical microscope. The text fills a valuable niche, as many textbooks on structural geology do not discuss microscopic aspects of deformation ! . The book is extremely well illustrated with some 322 figures ! . The book explains basic principles in a simple form with considerable references, enabling the reader to obtain more in-depth information ! . I recommend it as an addition to any geologist's bookshelf." (Steve Parry, Materials World, Vol. 15 (3), March, 2007) "Microtectonics is a book that I have come to value highly since its publication in 1996. I like the excellent photographs of deformed rocks under the microscope, with their precise descriptive captions. ! Microtectonics is an excellent book for researches and advanced students of structural geology, and Cees Passchier and Rudolf Trouw have done this community a service in producing the updated edition with such care." (Nigel Woodcock, Geological Magazine, Vol. 144 (3), 2007)
