Booknews
Basement tectonics encompasses the deep fundamental structures that control intraplate movement, i.e., the motions within the plates themselves, whereas plate tectonics is concerned with the motion and activity between crustal plates. Following a brief history of basement tectonics and the International Basement Tectonics Conferences, these proceedings of the August 1992 conference are arranged in four sections: rifting--Midcontinent Rifts; basement control on younger structures; shear zones; and abstracts. No index. Produced by the International Basement Tectonics Association. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
