'Mike Johnson and Simon Harley have produced a book that provides an overview of orogenic research and an introduction to the physico-chemical properties of mountain belts. Both are leading authorities in their fields and their excellent understanding of the issues involved comes through in the clearly-structured text … this book deserves to be widely read.' Geoscientist

'… this book offers plenty of food for thought … would be a useful addition to the library of a geologist desiring an overview of the diverse array of topics associated with modern approaches to mountain building and orogenic tectonics.' Rebecca A. Jamieson, Elements

'Logical arrangement, [an] attractive narrative style that leads [the] reader through [the] complex topic of the formation of mountains without weariness, legible and very well prepared illustrations [make] this volume … important … for geologists, geophysicists, petrologists and geochemists.' Marek Lewandowski, Pure and Applied Geophysics

'… a very fresh look at the problems of orogenesis. It can serve as an ultimate reference for those who are specialized in studies of this phenomenon … very important for the professionals as an exceptional (and updated!) synthesis. … an excellent gift for all university lecturers in tectonics, petrology, and general geology.' Zentralblatt für Geologie und Paläontologie
