Diagenesis is a highly developed, interdisciplinary field of study. It is reciprocal in that it borrows from numerous scientific or technological specialities and then, in turn, repays them with useful results. Too often, however, the information gained and concepts developed remain unintegrated instead of being utilized quickly by several related earth-science fraternities. This volume, the second of a multi-volume work, attempts to bring together such information, thereby assisting the individual and the research group in keeping up with the data explosion.
There is no end in sight to diagenetic research because of its wide practical and intellectual appeals. Consequently, periodic reviews, such as presented in this volume, are greatly needed.

@from:Australian Mineral Foundation @qu:This book is a mixture of philosophy and science, as in the editors' introduction, and useful reviews of recent work on diagenesis. It should be of value to those wishing to keep abreast of progress in sedimentology and diagenesis. @source:AMF Informative Book Review Series
