This is an interesting and informative book that will help the outsider get rapidly up to speed with some of the issues linked to natural hazards in eastern Asia and the western Pacific and would be of general interest to those working on natural-hazard issues, as well as the marine geophysics and tectonics of the western Pacific area. The volume was put together by James Terry of the National University of Singapore and James Goff of the University of New South Wales. It is not a geophysical book in the limited sense of the term, but it spans several issues that are current “hot” research themes and demonstrates new data analytical methods that could be applied to a suite of related problems. This is a broad-based volume with 17 papers spanning a variety of geo-hazard issues in what the editors argue is a part of the world that is uniquely afflicted with such concerns because it spans the subduction tectonics of the Pacific “ring of fire” and Indonesia, the extrusion tectonics of SE...
