“ ... a unique, high-caliber, and accessible undergraduate textbook ... well written and priced right.” EOS

This market-leading textbook has been fully updated in response to extensive user feedback. It includes a completely new chapter on joints and veins, additional examples from around the world, stunning new field photos, and extended online resources with new animations and exercises. The book’s practical emphasis, hugely popular in the first edition, features applications in the upper crust including petroleum and groundwater geology, which highlight the importance of structural geology in exploration and exploitation of petroleum and water resources.

CHOICE

“Very seldom can one buy a book of this quality.”

Carefully designed full-color illustrations work closely with the text to support student learning and are supplemented with high-quality photos from around the world. Examples and parallels drawn from practical everyday situations engage students. End-of-chapter review questions, and additional problem sets online, help students to check their understanding. Boxes containing in-depth material, relevant examples, and background information give context and show students the relevance of the theory to the bigger picture. Updated e-learning modules further reinforce key topics and bring concepts to life using summaries, innovative animations, and additional examples and figures.

and S. Max Walters

The long-awaited fourth edition of a classic text, which considers the implications of new advances and challenges in our understanding of the evolution of flowering plants. It has been fully revised for the molecular era, and will continue to be an authoritative resource for students in the field.

Advance praise: ‘… the most comprehensive and useful text on dinosaurs on the market. It’s both authoritative and whimsical, providing the student with a great background on dinosaurs and on the sciences needed to understand them. It’s fun to read and has great illustrations too.’

This book brings together ecology, evolution, genetics, anatomy and geology to provide a new perspective on human evolution from the apes’ viewpoint.

Dinosaurs continues to make science exciting and understandable to nonscience majors through its emphasis on scientific concepts rather than endless facts. Fully updated and now integrating the theme of feathered dinosaurs, this beautifully illustrated, lively and engaging text will encourage students to ask questions and think like a scientist.

This book presents up-to-date research achievements from a region that displays unique interactions between the climate, the environment and human evolution. Over eighty contributions from leading researchers review 2.5 million years of environmental change and human cultural evolution, creating an invaluable resource for students, academics and archaeologists.

This four-volume treatise on the continental drift controversy is the first complete history of the revolutionary theory of plate tectonics. Based on extensive interviews, archival papers and original works, Frankel weaves together the lives and work of the scientists involved, producing an accessible narrative for scientists and non-scientists alike. ‘… an unparalleled study of remarkable depth, detail and quality of a key development in our ideas about how the Earth functions … because Frankel draws on his extensive oral historical work with the key players in the development of plate tectonics, this is a study which can never be repeated in terms of its proximity to the events narrated, so many of those key players now being deceased.’ Robert J.

What does Japan’s 2011 nuclear accident have in common with the 2005 flooding of New Orleans from Hurricane Katrina? This thought-provoking book presents a compelling account of recent and historical disasters, both natural and human-caused, drawing out common themes and providing a holistic understanding of hazards, disasters and mitigation, for anyone interested in this important and topical subject. Based on his on-the-ground experience with several major recent disasters, Timothy H. Dixon explores the science, politics and economics behind a variety of disasters and environmental issues, arguing that many of the worst effects are avoidable. He describes examples of planning and safety failures, provides forecasts of future disasters and proposes solutions for hazard mitigation. The book shows how billions of dollars and countless lives could be saved by adopting longer-term thinking for infrastructure planning and building, and argues that better communication is vital in reducing global risks and preventing future catastrophes. 2016 228 x 152 mm 346pp 51 b/w illus.  6 tables   978-1-107-03518-8 Hardback £21.99 / US$29.99 Publication December 2016 For all formats available, see

Geology of Australia provides a comprehensive overview of Australia’s geology, landscapes and Earth resources. Beginning with the Precambrian rocks that hold clues to the origins of life and the development of an oxygenated atmosphere, it goes on to cover the warm seas, volcanism and episodes of mountain building that formed the eastern third of the Australian continent. This illuminating history details the breakup of the supercontinents Rodinia and Gondwana, the times of previous glaciations, the development of climates and landscapes in modern Australia, and the creation of the continental shelves and coastlines.

His witty observations and insightful anecdotes gleaned from a lifetime in science will entertain physicists at all levels, as well as anyone else interested in science or scientists at the turn of the twenty-first century. ‘This delightful collection of essays should be on the bookshelf of anyone who cares about the human side of physics; it kept me amply entertained for the whole of a transatlantic air 9781107155404c06_p142-167.indd 142 trip.

Statistics Explained An Introductory Guide for Life Scientists Second edition Steve McKillup Central Queensland University

This book provides straightforward conceptual explanations of statistical methods for the life sciences, specially designed for students lacking a strong mathematical background. ‘Every so often, a researcher or teacher comes across a book and exclaims ‘I wish I had had a book like this when I started!’ … Statistics Explained is such a book. Steve McKillup writes with empathy for students’ anxiety about statistics. He replaces complex-looking formulae 9781107155404c06_p142-167.indd 142 with graphics and realistic examples. He is a biologist writing for fellowbiologists … [The book] explains why the statistical test is needed before describing the test. Essential features of good survey and experimental design are clearly outlined … This is not ‘just another biostatistics textbook’. Its sheer readability will restore confidence to the most anxious student while experienced researchers will savour the clarity of the explanations of the common univariate and multivariate analyses … an ideal core text for anyone teaching or studying biostatistics …’ Andrew Boulton, University of New England, Australia

Computing power has revolutionized the theory and practice of statistical inference. This book delivers a concentrated course in modern statistical thinking by tracking the revolution from classical theories to the large-scale prediction algorithms of today. Anyone who applies statistical methods to data will benefit from this landmark text. ‘How and why is computational statistics taking over the world? In this serious work of synthesis that is also fun to read, Efron and Hastie, two pioneers in the integration of parametric and nonparametric statistical ideas, give their take on the unreasonable effectiveness of statistics and machine learning in the context of a series of clear, historically informed examples.’ Andrew Gelman, Columbia University, New York Institute of Mathematical Statistics Monographs, 5

BOOK REVIEWS

Review of glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) research in Great Britain

The Arctic journals of John Rae. Ken McGoogan (editor). Reviewed by William Barr. p 118 John Rae’s Arctic correspondence 1844–1855. Ken McGoogan (editor) Reviewed by William Barr. p 119 An Empire of air and water. Uncolonizable space in the British imagination 1750−1850.

COVER PHOTO The paperweights shown on the front cover were produced in 1889 by Macintyre and Co. with a double hemisphere map provided by the Edinburgh form of J.G. Bartholomew. The map was only the second known to have named Antarctica as such with a legend on the conjectured continent, and by including parts of it within the British empire it was possibly the first ever political map of Antarctica. See the note by Rip Bulkeley in this issue.
