Abstract : The book is the research results of some tectonic geologists in China in recent years. A total of eight articles in this field are collected in this book. This collection investigates the four major problems: (1) The architectonic characteristics in China and the principle of development; there are three different viewpoints on this subject: 'The theory of the interior lowland,' 'the theory of mosaics,' and 'the theory of inherited and superimposed structures'; (2) The pre-Cambrian architectonic problems of the eastern part of China, with the emphasis upon the characteristics of tectonic changes during the early Archeozoic Era; (3) Architectonics of the Mesozoic-Cenozoic oil-bearing basins in China; and (4) Architectonic problems in the Southeastern region of china. This book is suitable as a reference for research workers in geology, geotectonics and petroleum geology, and related instructors. (Author)
