This book was planned for advanced students, research workers, teachers in petrology, and enthusiastic undergraduates. It should also be of interest to solid-earth geophysicists because the International Upper Mantle project has focused attention on the implications of ultramafic rock studies for interpretations of upper mantle composition and mineralogy. The book is offered as a supplement to the standard textbooks on petrology, even the most detailed of which can devote only a few pages to the origin of any specific group of rocks. Several specialized volumes which perform a similar function for granites, carbonatites, basalts, and layered intrusions have been published recently, and these books fill a need that becomes more acute as the volume of research literature increases.
