This book presents the state of the art advances in topics related to the geologic setting of the two volcanoes, their eruptive history and composition of erupted products, the hydrothermal systems and their manifestations. Volcanic hazards and risks and possible mitigation plans are discussed based on the experience of the catastrophic eruption of El Chichon that occurred in 1982. The book will also include previously unpublished material on the flora and the fauna of the region and archaeological and social aspects of the area that is inhabited by indigenous people.

"The book provides an interesting and complete narrative of El Chichon and Tacana ... . This book is a prime and necessary reference that allows the reader to explore the characteristic features of those active Mexican volcanoes and to compare their natures with those of other volcanoes. ... It will also be very useful in providing information that can be used to improve the operational plan in charge of the civil protection authorities." (Gerardo Carrasco-Nunez, Bulletin of Volcanology, Vol. 77, 2015)
