A clean, unmarked copy with a tight binding. 362 pages. Previous owner's name inside. Contents: Introduction and overview; Mechanical principles of sediment deformation; Glacial deformation; Sedimentary deformational structures; Mass movements; Tectonic deformation: stress paths and strain histories; Fluids in deforming sediments; Sediment deformation, dewatering and diagenesis: illustrations from selected melange zones; Deformation structures preserved in rocks; Appendix; References; Index.

This book covers the theoretical principles, their application and results in all the geological environments where sediment deformation is now known to be important. It explains the basic ideas for a newcomer, but develops concepts and provides numerous up-to-date literature references for the advanced specialist. The emphasis is on employing a sound understanding of mechanical principles to analyze observed structures.
