Editorial Reviews

`Overall, this is an excellent volume... The real strength of [it] is that in a single volume it provides a convenient and wide-ranging summary of current developments in mineral energetics, from crystal chemistry to petrological applications. As such, it is to be warmly recommended for all Earth Science libraries.' Mineralogical Magazine
