|Summary:||This well-illustrated book treats the geology of Ireland mainly in a historical manner, from Precambrian to Recent; including chapters not only on the Caledonides and on Caledonian and Tertiary igneous activity, but also on geophysical evidence and on economic geology. Since the appearance of the important compilation on the historical geology of Ireland by the late Professor J. K. Charlesworth some 20 years ago, much has happened in Irish geological research; this new treatment is at once broad and concise, each chapter having a comprehensive bibliography. (The chapters on the pre-Caledonian basement, the orthotectonic Caledonides, the Cambrian and Ordovician of the paratectonic Caledonides, Caledonian igneous activity, Late Caledonian deformation, Hercynian structures, Tertiary igneous activity, and economic geology are each the subject of a separate abstract in this issue) [R.A.H.]|
