The 32 papers in this volume mark the hundredth anniversary of Peach and Horne's groundbreaking study of the structure of Scotland's northwest Highlands, a major milestone in geologists' efforts to understand the processes that shape the Earth. Researchers place the original 1907 findings in historical and modern contexts, comparing them to current studies of crust deformation in both the Highlands and other of the world's mountain belts.
