The most target of this booklet is to supply a latest complete assertion at the Earth's Precambrian crust. It makes use of geographic and tectonic position, lithostratigraphy, geochronology, and petrogenesis as a foundation for contemplating Precambrian coastal evolution--including the position of plate tectonics. distinctive attention is given to the endogenic and exogenic methods which shaped the continental crust and likewise to its next secular evolution throughout Precambrian time**An crucial reference quantity for each Precambrian geologist.
