Sylvester PJ (ed) (2000) Continent formation, growth and recycling. Taylor HP (1986) Igneous rocks: II.
It discusses global models for crustal growth, emphasizing episodic magmatism, crustal and lithospheric thickness, and crustal isostasy. ISBN13:9780444506221. Release Date:December 2000.
The continental drift/ Airy-Heiskanen isostasy hypothesis had many flaws and scarce data. The fixist/ Pratt-Hayford isostasy, the contracting Earth and the expanding Earth concepts had many flaws as well.

Continent formation through time. Clift. Topics covered include the style of continent formation in the Hadean and Archaean, the onset of plate tectonics and subduction, the rate of crustal growth and the preservational bias that may exist in the zircon record.
