This textbook provides a basic understanding of the formative processes of igneous and metamorphic rock through quantitative applications of simple physical and chemical principles. The book encourages a deeper comprehension of the subject by explaining the petrologic principles rather than simply presenting the student with petrologic facts and terminology. Assuming knowledge of only introductory college-level courses in physics, chemistry, and calculus, it lucidly outlines mathematical derivations fully and at an elementary level, and is ideal for intermediate and advanced courses in igneous and metamorphic petrology. The end-of-chapter quantitative problem sets facilitate student learning by working through simple applications. They also introduce several widely-used thermodynamic software programs for calculating igneous and metamorphic phase equilibria and image analysis software. With over 350 illustrations, this revised edition contains valuable new material on the structure of the Earth's mantle and core, the properties and behaviour of magmas, recent results from satellite imaging, and more.

'It emphasises principles rather than facts. The end-of-chapter problems for students are excellent.' Tim Lutz, University of Pennsylvania
'I am very pleased to see the quality of this text. It will definitely be the best undergraduate petrology text when it appears on the shelf. You have a winner.' C. Page Chamberlain, Dartmouth College
'The presentation is clear and concise, the illustrations extremely useful … Of great utility are the problems at the end of each chapter … This is a fantastic book.' Steven R. Bohlen, President of Joint Oceanographic Institutions
'… a volume which will likely be well thumbed and littered with 'stickies' and other place markers by students and professors alike … a 'must-have' for any self-respecting petrologist …' Elements
'I eagerly anticipated the second edition that included Jay Ague as coauthor to complement Philpotts' expertise in igneous petrology. My high expectations were not disappointed. … Will … be remembered as the first to put transport theory into the teaching of petrology.' American Journal of Science
'This is an ideal book for advanced courses in petrology, and particularly for students who truly want to study and understand this discipline and who are ready to spend time on it … The content is rigorous, in-depth and up-to-date. Those who decide to study it, will get a firm foundation on which they may build future research. I highly recommend this textbook and really regret that I had not the chance to use it during my own university education.' Julita Biernacka, Geologos
This textbook explains petrologic concepts through simple physical and chemical principles and quantitative applications. With instructive end-of-chapter quantitative problem sets and over 350 illustrations, this new edition is designed for intermediate and advanced courses in igneous and metamorphic petrology.
