The two volume International Handbook of Earthquake and Engineering Seismology represents the International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior's (IASPEI) ambition to provide a comprehensive overview of our present knowledge of earthquakes and seismology.

Part A of the Handbook, by more than 80 leading authors from major institutions of science around the world, features 56 full-length chapters detailing the history of seismology, theoretical and observational seismology, earthquake geology and mechanics, seismicity of the earth, and the Earth's structure.
