Rheology and Deformation of the Lithosphere at Continental Margins is a collection of well written and interesting papers that provide a good overview of the current cutting edge in seismically oriented deformation studies. The book is, unfortunately, somewhat misnamed. It really should be titled something akin to “A review of seismogenic behavior in different plate tectonic settings (and some partially molten mantle deformation experiments).” Perhaps it sounds less impressive, but that is really what you get in this book: a series of excellent review papers, most of which focus on our current understanding of seismogenic behavior.
