Editorial Reviews


“Highly recommended.”
(C. L. Hebblethwaite Choice 2011-06-29)

“This book is the book to have if volcanoes are your thing. . . . A useful addition in any scientific library.”
(Helen Ashton Emerald Journal 2012-01-01)

From the Inside Flap

"Volcanoes of the World compiles and lists all of earth's eruptions into one primary scientific source. It is a fundamental research tool and the last word on many issues. There is nothing else like it."—William I. Rose, Michigan Technological University

"Volcanoes of the World stands alone. To my knowledge (as a practicing volcanologist for more than 4 decades), there are no competing works in the scientific literature comparable in purpose, scope, and scholarship."—Robert Tilling, Volcano Science Center, U.S. Geological Survey

I would highly recommend the third edition of Volcanoes of the World.
This is an authoritative, well illustrated and updated version of the
1994 edition of Volcanoes of the World.
