Rocks underpin our lives: they make up the solid structure of the Earth. We live on the rocky surface of the planet; grow our food on weathered debris derived from rocks; and we obtain nearly all of the raw materials with which we founded our civilization from rocks. Rocks: A Very Short Introduction looks at the nature and variety of rocks and the processes by which they are formed. It considers what we know about the deep rocks of the mantle and core, and what rocks can tell us about the evolution of the Earth; and it looks at rocks found in outer space and on other planets.
