This book records the geoheritage values of globally significant, yet little-known, volcanic geosites in Saudi Arabia. It is the first of its kind to focus on the Middle East, clearly showing the hidden geoheritage value of the volcanic Arabian Peninsula's harrats and demonstrating why the Saudi Arabian volcanic fields are unique. Along with the systematic geosite description, the book introduces scientifically founded geoeducational programs that can be used to develop our understanding of volcanic geoheritage values of volcanic fields. It offers a detailed and comprehensive research-based description of four of the most accessible volcanic harratts in Saudi Arabia and an additional summary of other more remote fields. Additionally, it discusses geoeducational programs that could be used to link these volcanic areas and use them in volcanic hazard education.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Book by Moufit & Nemeth focuses on the very peculiar geological features of the place with very peculiar nature, namely harrats of the Arabian Peninsula. ... lt is suitable that precise geographical coordinates are given for all discussed localities. The illustrations are numerous. ... The book is recommended to the broad spectrum of readers, including geoscientists working in the Middle East, specialists in geoconservation and geotourism, and petrology lecturers." (Dmitry A. Ruban, Rostov am Don, Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie, Iss. 2, 2017)

"A good book on geoheritage and geotourism is one which motivates the reader to visit the particular sites, and this book completely succeeded in that. ... I recommend this highly illustrated and very informative book to a wide audience of volcanologists, geoheritage researchers and geotourists-this is one of the `top ten places to see before you die'." (Hetu Sheth, Bulletin of Volcanology, Vol. 78, 2016)
