A valuable new book on Africa Mar 11, 2007
This a very good collection of maps and descriptions for each African country. The regional geology is generally well described and obviously represents the best consesus and data available. The economic geology is occasionly a bit generic and doesn't cover recent exploration activities in Africa. The hazard and sites descriptions are a bit so so due to lack of data in many cases. The continental review is also usefull (14 pages).
