Mercury is an extreme planet, and thus it provides a unique benchmark for testing our theories about the origin and evolution of other terrestrial planets. Emphasis is given on the planet's origin, its metal-rich composition, its thermal and geophysical evolution, and its cratering history; these topics are complex and controversial, and this book contains a variety of new perspectives on them.
