The North American Cordillera records the tectonic, metamorphic, and magmatic history of a continental margin active since the middle Paleozoic. These essays (from a GSA symposium, data unspecified) deal with the magmatic origin of the compositional span of igneous activity that characterizes the orogon. They contain new data and interpretations on the Mesozoic and Tertiary igneous suites of the Cordillera from Baja California to Alaska. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
