The Zagros fold-thrust belt (ZFTB) extends from Turkey to the Hormuz Strait, resulting from the collision of the Arabian and Eurasian plates during Cenozoic times, and separates the Arabian platform from the large plateaux of central Iran. To the east a pronounced syntaxis marks the transition between the Zagros collision belt and the Makran accretionary wedge. In the ZFTB, the Proterozoic to Recent stratigraphic succession pile is involved in huge folds, and offers the opportunity to study the stratigraphic and tectonic evolution of the Palaeo-Tethyan margin.

Few recent data were widely available on the southern Tethys margin preserved in the Zagros Mountains. The Middle East Basins Evolution (MEBE) program was an excellent opportunity to go back to the field and to collect new data to better constrain the evolution of this margin. In this volume the structure of the Zagros Mountains is explored through different scales and using different methodologies.

James Jackson

There is much that is valuable in this volume that is produced and illustrated in abundant colour. It is perhaps invidious to single out particular contributions, as that must reflect the personal interests of the reviewer. It is striking how transformative is the application of modern seismology, in the form of high-quality digital data and new techniques such as receiver function analysis.The final paper of the volume, and by far the longest (63 pages) is a hefty review of the petroleum systems in the Zagros and its contiguous offshore by Bordenave & Hegre, with a huge wealth of information gathered in one place; one that will surely be useful and welcome for some time to come.
