@qu:This volume, in certain important aspects, is a considerable advance on any previous collection of papers on rifts and rift valleys. It probably contains a better blend of modelling and formulation of hypotheses, with access to new information and the results of painstaking research, than any recent compilation. @source: Journal of Structural Geology
