This is the first compilation dealing with all breccias to be made in 70 years, and the first such compilation ever to appear in book form. Bridging the gap between the established divisions of petrology and metallogeny, its approach is original and non-conventional. It emphasizes facts rather than hypotheses and has a large body of data based on international literature and worldwide coverage. There are four thematic indexes, 323 figures (incorporating 460 original photographs) and over 1000 references. In almost 850 pages, Professor Laznicka reviews all coarse fragmental rocks of all origins in all associations, regardless of the established petrographic division, and based on a new, rational organisation. Emphasizing breccias and focussing on related metallic ore accumulations, the book stresses empirical facts and has a considerable breadth so that it is particularly suitable for identification and interpretation of local breccia occurrences. Metallic mineralizations are treated in the framework of breccia (or fragmentite) forming/containing environment or association. This has a practical application in exploration for ores.
