The third edition of Radiogenic Isotope Geology examines revolutionary changes in geochemical thinking that have occurred over the past fifteen years. Extinct-nuclide studies on meteorites have called into question fundamental geochemical models of the Earth, while new dating methods have challenged conventional views of Earth history. At the same time, the problem of global warming has raised new questions about the causes of past and present climate change. In the new edition, these and other recent issues are evaluated in their scholarly and historical context, so readers can understand the development of current ideas. Controversial theories, new analytical techniques, classic papers, and illustrative case studies all come under scrutiny in this book, providing an accessible introduction for students and critical commentary for researchers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The Dickin text provides an excellent introduction to radiogenic isotope geochemistry. I read a previous edition cover-to-cover during preparation for the general knowledge exams in graduate school, and I still suggest that graduate students do the same in preparation for their exams. It continues to be a key reference for teaching and in the classroom and in the laboratory.' Matthew Jackson, University of California, Santa Barbara
'Isotope geochemistry is hugely influential in the development of new approaches and ideas in the Earth sciences. New data challenge models for the formation of the Earth, the evolution of the continental crust, and climate change. An understanding of the basic principles of isotope geology is important in a wide range of the sciences, and this welcome third edition of Radiogenic Isotope Geology builds on the success of the previous editions. It is scholarly and accessible, and it combines an all too rare historical context with a comprehensive introduction to a wide range of radiogenic isotope techniques. Written by one of the world's most respected authors in this field, this textbook will be invaluable for undergraduate and graduate courses, and it is an excellent reference text for scientists in other fields.' Chris Hawkesworth, University of Bristol
'For teachers and students in both low- and high-temperature geochemistry who need ready access to geochemical concepts and techniques, Alan P. Dickin offers an up-to-date, well-written medium-level textbook on isotope geochemistry. A pleasant, handy, and useful book for your shelf.' Francis Albarede, Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon
