Metamorphic Petrology is a field that was barely defined at the beginning of the 20th century, but blossomed rapidly to a point where many of the first order problems had been resolved by the century’s end opening up a whole range of new research opportunities. Professor Bernard Evans of the University of Washington has selected a collection of papers from diverse sources and his valuable commentary on each paper places it in the context of what has gone before. The papers document the major achievements of the field, but also the new challenges that it has set itself.
