Review quote

"This textbook does a good job of presenting the major material to be covered in a structural geology course. The authors are to be congratulated."--Frederick W. Vollmer, State University of New York at New Paltz

"Structural Geology is well organized and well thought out. It has sections on geochemistry, isotope geology, thermochronology, geochronology, and geophysical techniques, all of which are tools that modern structural geologists must have some familiarity with."--Ernest Duebendorfer, Northern Arizona University

"I like that they made a clearly written, well-illustrated textbook specifically for juniors and seniors. It definitely fills a notable void."--Maria Elisabeth Brunhart-Lupo, Colorado School of Mines
