'The Making of a Land - Geology of Norway' takes the reader on a journey in geological time, from primordial times to the present day. A fantastic journey from the summits of Norway's spectacular rugged and weather-beaten mountains to the riches concealed in the sedimentary rocks on the continental shelf. This book displays the treasures of Norwegian geology for everyone to see.
Norway's geological resources represent the foundation of its welfare state. During several centuries first the mining, and then the oil industries have been economic mainstays, and this will continue in the future.
The book presents a description both of Norway and the planet we inhabit and depend on for our survival. It is lavishly illustrated with photographs and maps from all over the country.

The editors, translators and many authors, all contributing voluntarily, have done a wonderful job. The sponsors could not have supported a worthier project. The book is well written and translated, lavishly illustrated with beautiful scenic- and detailed photographs, clear geological maps and cross sections, well chosen seismic profiles and maps etc. The various textboxes are functional and a nice source of supplementary information. There is no doubt in my mind that this book is a must for anybody interested in geology, in particular so divers a geology as encountered in Norway. --T.J.A.
