Our knowledge of Mars has grown enormously over the last decade as a result of the Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Odyssey, Mars Express, and the two Mars Rover missions. This book is a systematic summary of what we have learnt about the geological evolution of Mars as a result of these missions. It describes the diverse Martian surface features and summarizes current ideas as to how, when, and under what conditions they formed, and explores how Earth and Mars differ and why the two planets evolved so differently. The author also discusses possible implications of the geologic history for the origin and survival of indigenous Martian life. Up-to-date and highly illustrated, this book will be a principal reference for researchers and graduate students in planetary science. The comprehensive list of references will also assist readers in pursuing further information on the subject. Colour images can be found at www.cambridge.org/9780521872010.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Mike Carr, Geologist Emeritus at the US Geological Survey, has participated in virtually all those missions and has probably seen more Mars imagery than anyone; no one is more qualified to write this book. ... Astronomy has now abdicated much of the solar system to geology, and no geoscientist with an interest in the revolution should be without a copy.' Journal of Geology
"...this book will prove very useful both to incoming students in the field and researchers wishing to become more familiar with recent advances in subjects outside their usual area. It is excellently prepared and presented and likely to become a common feature on the bookshelves of planetary scientists everywhere." --The Meteoritical Society
"...describes morphology and process on the red planet, and it does that extremely well...no one is more qualified to write this book...Astronomy has now abdicated much of the solar system to geology, and no geoscientist with an interest in the revolution should be without a copy." --Journal of Geology
