Reviews

From the reviews:

"The aim was simple: to assimilate basic geological facts for each African country, in order to give the regional geologist a digestible starting point for future research. The book, which is printed in full colour on high quality, glossy paper, is in A4 format and organized into four chapters. … the book is very attractive to a wider audience and shouldn’t miss the office table community. The Geological Atlas of Africa is a worthwhile addition to the regional literature on African geology." (Daniel Paul le Heron, Geological Magazine, Vol. 144 (2), 2007)

From the reviews of the second edition: “Creating an atlas that presents its maps and information in an original way is difficult, but is exactly the goal Schlüter lays out in the … Geological Atlas of Africa. … The maps are brilliantly and clearly coloured and well-labelled. … The generic title is testament to the fact that this atlas is the first of its kind and thus deserves a place in any map library collection … . It can be user-friendly … for those studying one specific country … .” (Michael Karabinos, Journal of Spatial Science, Vol. 54 (2), 2009) “The second edition of the Geological Atlas of Africa is a very polished piece of work and will be of benefit to anyone who needs a basic geological overview of African countries and territories. I would certainly recommend it as a library reference for attracting students in African geology. … the Geological Atlas of Africa provides a basic database to initiate new scientific research projects in Africa. This may help to promote African Earth sciences both within the continent and outside.” (Guido Meinhold, Geological Magazine, Vol. 147 (2), 2010)
