High number of high-quality line drawings and photographs not only support the text but also give readers vaulable experience in interprating what they observe in the field.
Newest developments in microtectonics have been included in all chapters so that al chapters have been revised and updated, e.g. new information on brittle microstructures

From the reviews of the second edition:
"This book deals with descriptions and interpretations of small-scale structures in deformed rock, as seen ... through an optical microscope. The text fills a valuable niche, as many textbooks on structural geology do not discuss microscopic aspects of deformation ... . The book is extremely well illustrated with some 322 figures ... . The book explains basic principles in a simple form with considerable references, enabling the reader to obtain more in-depth information ... . I recommend it as an addition to any geologist's bookshelf." (Steve Parry, Materials World, Vol. 15 (3), March, 2007)
"Microtectonics is a book that I have come to value highly since its publication in 1996. I like the excellent photographs of deformed rocks under the microscope, with their precise descriptive captions. ... Microtectonics is an excellent book for researches and advanced students of structural geology, and Cees Passchier and Rudolf Trouw have done this community a service in producing the updated edition with such care." (Nigel Woodcock, Geological Magazine, Vol. 144 (3), 2007)
