Summary: One of the world's most respected seismologists provides a brief overview of the history of earthquakes and seismology, including topics such as geologic faults, intensity patterns, plate tectonics, side effects of earthquakes (such as tsunamis), and protection of people and property. The book contains descriptions of the 1995 Sakhalin and 1997 Assisi earthquakes, and more recent earthquakes such as Northridge, California (1994), Kobe, Japan (1995), Chi Chi, Taiwan (
1999) and Denali, Alaska (2003). The sequence of chapters has been reorganized to better facilitate learning the broad concepts before the details, and new exercises and web references have been added that give students the opportunity to think and use data the way field seismologists do.
