From the cover: “For thousands of millions of years catastrophic earthshocks have shaped and reshaped the face of our planet. Some of these earth events are violent and short-lived, like the explosions of large volcanoes or the havoc caused by giant earthquakes. Others are more insidious, slowly submerging whole countries beneath the ocean or converting enormous areas into useless desert. In this timely and important book two outstanding geologists, drawing upon their extensive research experience of the Earth and its history, assess the many dangers that menace our everyday lives, highlighting their survey with numerous case histories of previous natural disasters.” Illustrated with 16 pages of black and white photographs and 39 line drawings.
