One of the most eye-catching guides to the world's volcanoes ever published, packed with stunning photography. Introductory chapters include clear and concise information on plate tectonics, types of volcanoes, eruption styles and volcanic hazards.

The main chapters take the reader on a journey around the world beginning in Iceland and taking in Italy, Turkey, Greece, Egypt, Ethiopia, Congo, Tanzania and the Canary Islands. We cross the Atlantic to look at the Guatemalan volcanoes then travel north to the USA, ending up in the Aleutian Islands and Hawaii. In the South Pacific we examine the famous volcanoes of Vanuatu and New Zealand, before taking in Japan and Indonesia, ending at Krakatau.

An ideal book for volcano enthusiasts of all levels.
