Mount Etna: The Anatomy of a Volcano



First, let me say that one should be prepared to purchase two copies of this book. The office copy will be permanently on loan to colleagues and students, while the home copy will be yours for enjoyment and reference. This immensely informative book by the British Etna study group, led by John Guest of University College London, will, I am sure, be very popular. It amply fulfills the authors' aims of synthesizing the results of many published and unpublished multinational studies into a coherent picture of Europe's largest and most active volcano.
