From the reviews:

"The Geology and Tectonic Setting of China's Mineral Deposits is a major accomplishment in that it brings together an extraordinary amount of material that has been published on these deposits in recent years. ... this book is the first English-language summary of China's mineral deposits and should be in all major earth-science libraries; it is a recommended purchase for anyone exploring in China or studying the nation's metallogeny." (Richard J. Goldfarb, Mineralium Deposita, Vol. 48, 2013)
