Reviews

From the reviews:

"Thrust belts and foreland basins form by both deep and surface geological processes at different time scales and therefore record the main phases of orogenic evolution. … The book is well executed and designed with a good mix between color and black-and-white illustrations. All tables are consistently color-shaded, and the seven sections are clearly marked. … is recommended to post-graduate students, academic researchers and applied earth scientists. Regarding the last-mentioned group, the book is particularly useful for those interested in Iranian and Pakistani petroleum geology." (Jan de Coo, Journal of Sedimentary Research, September, 2007)
