Booklist Review

Yet another title in Salem's Magill's Choice series. This one collects and in some cases updates 87 "essential articles" from among the 432 essays in Magill's Survey of Science: Earth Science Series (1990) and Magill's Survey of Science: Earth Science Series, Supplement (1998).


Choice Review

Emphasizing the fundamentals of the subdisciplines of geology, this set in the "Magill's Choice" series is designed to meet the basic reference needs of libraries on limited budgets. It collects 87 articles from Magill's Survey of Science: Earth Science Series (6v., 1990-98; CH, Oct'90). Articles average 3,500 words in length, each beginning by defining principal terms used in the essay and categorizing the geologic subdiscipline. The articles are well written; most have been updated with new material to reflect advances in research and scholarship. Articles have three sections--summary, methods, and context--intended to help readers understand the concept and explain both how it applies to geologic research and its place in geology. Each article includes updated annotated bibliographies and cross-references to related articles; some have photographs and illustrations. Readers may locate articles by title, subject category, cross-reference, or by consulting the general index. Articles are tailored to high school and college undergraduate students studying core earth science courses. Recommended for public and undergraduate libraries. C. A. Groves; Ball State University
