520    "In its first edition, Soils established itself as the 
       leading textbook in the fields of pedology and soil 
       geomorphology. Expanded and fully updated, this second 
       edition maintains its highly organized and readable style.
       Suitable as a textbook and a research-grade reference, the
       book's introductory chapters in soil morphology, 
       mineralogy, chemistry, physics, and organisms prepare the 
       reader for the more advanced treatment that follows. 
       Unlike its competitors, this textbook devotes considerable
       space to discussions of soil parent materials and soil 
       mixing, along with dating and paleoenvironmental 
       reconstruction techniques applicable to soils. Although 
       introductions to widely used soil classification systems 
       are included, theory and processes of soil genesis and 
       geomorphology form the backbone of the book. Replete with 
       more than 550 high-quality figures and photos and a 
       detailed glossary, this book will be invaluable for anyone
       studying soils, landforms, and landscape change anywhere 
       on the globe"--|cProvided by publisher.
