Plate tectonics is a scientific theory describing the large-scale motion of seven large plates and the movements of a larger number of smaller plates of the Earth's lithosphere, since tectonic processes began on Earth between . and . billion.

Plate tectonics is a scientific theory describing the large-scale motion of seven large plates and the movements of a larger number of smaller plates of the Earth's lithosphere, since tectonic processes began on Earth between . billion years ago. The model builds on the concept of continental drift, an idea developed during the first decades of the 20th century. The geoscientific community accepted plate-tectonic theory after seafloor spreading was validated in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

This comprehensive text has established itself over the past 20 years as the definitive work in its fields, presenting a thorough coverage of this key area of structural geology in a way which is ideally suited to advanced undergraduate and masters courses. The thorough coverage means that it is also useful to a wider readership as an up to date survey of plate tectonics.The fourth edition brings the text fully up to date, with coverage of the latest research in crustal evolution, supercontinents, mass extinctions. A new chapter covers the feedbacks of various Earth systems. In addition, a new appendix provides a valuable survey of current methodology.

Although a used book, it was like new. Condie has packed his book with essential facts. The book is challenging to read, but well written as teaching text. An extensive glossary, however is needed. I have learned a great deal and expect to learn even more. This is not casual reading, but requires much focus and referencing on the internet. I do, however, sincerely want to learn about the origin of Earth's crust. This is a good text for a serious learner.

I got this book from the library first, then made copies of a few chapters, but then had to get the book. It's a little advanced for me, had to read it many times over, but always got something out of it. The reading is very good - it kept my attention. This was one of the first books that got me interested in geology. The more you read it, over & over again, the more you understand. I really like this book.

This book is a great deal in terms of price/quality. A tremendous introduction to plate tectonics, geological geochemistry and even biological processes and the Earth's evolution. Every chapter has shortened "main statements" that clearly sum up and clarify everything of the main text. The addition of the cd has some animated graphs to better illustrate some of the processes developed in the text. Don't hesitate to buy it if you are looking for simplicity in understanding Earth's sciences.

Condie's work has long been the standard work in plate tectonics. I've just read the 4th edition. As good as the previous editions. However, this is a volume for senior geology majors or graduate students. I hope Condie is contemplating the Millennium edition. One suggestion--re-draft all graphs to have common time scale including geologic time periods.

The book is probably better than I rated it, but I was looking for a different approach.
