Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This is a very impressive synthesis of multidiciplinary research carried out on the British Isles and I am convinced it will inspire future research in Quaternary science. I have greatly enjoyed the book and I would warmly recommend it... - Boreas Book Reviews; The authors are to be congratulated on amassing such a wealth of material on the British Pleisene - Geography; It is a welcome sight...to see a comprehensive up-to-date account of British Pleisene stratigraphy. Indeed anyone responsible for teaching aspects of the British Pleisene will breathe a sigh of relief to see such a detailed account of the extensive changes to the established sequence...recognized in recent years, finally compiled into a single volume...this book will be invaluable to third-year and postgraduate students...as well as to the established Pleisene worker - Holocene Book Reviews; This is an important and necessary book...the achievement of a comprehensive survey and regional synthesis is very great - Journal of Archaeological Science; ...an ideal introduction to the student...I full recommend this volume as an excellent up-to-date account of a very dynamic area of research - New Phytol; The book collects together a wide range of stratigraphic information and interpretations from diverse sources which otherwise would not be readily available. This is a welcome addition to Quaternary Studies in Great Britain - Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology

Briefly describes the new techniques that, over the last 20 years, have been used to rectify discrepancies between terrestrial and deep-sea findings, but primarily traces the cycles of change, stage by stage. Well illustrated. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
