Synopsis: In this oversized volume, award-winning photographer Philippe Bourseiller documents the awesome power and devastating aftermath of volcanoes. More than 170 full-color double spreads depict the volatile outbursts of active volcanoes with photos of red-hot oceans and rivers of fire, massive craters and islands formed from molten rock, and silt-coated towns. The book begins with a discussion of how volcanoes have been alternately worshiped and feared by different cultures throughout history and ends with a chapter on what is currently known by science about the natural phenomena behind volcanic eruptions.
About the Author: Philippe Bourseiller, five-time winner of the prestigious World Press Prize, travels the world photographing wild and unexplored places. For more than a decade he has photographed active volcanoes and their effect on surrounding civilizations. Jacques Durieux, a noted volcanologist, is the founder and Director of the Society for the Study of Active Volcanoes. Jean-Louis Cheminée, who wrote the preface, is Director of Research at the National Center for Scientific Research in France and Director of the Volcanological Observatory at the Institute of Global Physics in Paris.
