This is the first study of the changes tectonic plate theory forced upon classical geology. It is a crucial text in the history of science. Franz Kossmat's "Palaogeographie" is a remarkable book that discusses the relation between classical geology and plate tectonic theory. Kossmat offers an interesting critique of Wegener's continental drift model, while providing some intriguing theories of his own regarding continental motion. More importantly, Kossmat documented the interplay between transgressive and regressive marine phases in a unique graphical format that deserves to be better known. Kossmat's theories are virtually unknown in the Anglophone world. Therefore, a publication of this translation is now timely as we approach the centenary of Wegener's 1912 publication of the continental drift theory.
