This book reviews current ideas explaining the formation of granite in terms of melting, segregation, ascent and emplacement. It introduces an alternative hypothesis that granites are endogenic in that they essentially form and remain at melting sites in the middle-upper crust under conditions of abnormally high heat flow. The book highlights results of Chinese research over the last 30 years in English for the first time.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Granite Genesis: In-Situ Melting and Crustal Evolution is a timely, well-structured, and enjoyable read. The authors provide a useful introduction to granite terminology and the `granite debate' ... The book benefits in continuity and style from having only two authors and is easy to read. ... this book provides a valuable synthesis and is a great reference for all graduate students and professionals interested in granitic rocks, from their petrogenesis to emplacement mechanisms." (Victoria Pease, Geological Magazine, Vol. 146 (3), 2009)
