The aim of this book is to provide a up-to-date statement on the Earth's Precambrian crust. It uses geographic and tectonic location, lithostratigraphy, geochronology, and petrogenesis as a basis for considering Precambrian coastal evolution - including the role of plate tectonics. Detailed consideration is given to the endogenic and exogenic processes which formed the continental crust, and also to its subsequent secular evolution across Precambrian time.

Review quote

"No effort should be spared to purchase a volume that must be on the bookshelves of geologists....Do not let the price...put you off. The book is a veritable mine of information that will repay your investment a thousand-fold. Alan Goodwin deserves our gratitude for undertaking such a monumental task. Praise must also go to the draughting team and the publishers for producing such a fine volume."--PRECAMBRIAN RESEARCH
