Tectonic geologist Park portrays the geology of Europe in terms of how its present complexity came about. He assumes that readers understand basic geological terms and concepts, and provides a glossary of more technical terms. His topics are the construction of Baltica--proto-Europe, the Lower Paleozoic growth of proto-Europe, the Caledonian orogeny, the expansion of Europe in the Upper Paleozoic, the Hercynian orogenic cycle, Europe in Mesozoic to mid-Cenozoic time, the Alpine orogeny, and Neogene to Quaternary Europe.
