Slope Stability Engineering: Developments and Applications : Proceedings of the International Conference on Slope Stability

Front Cover
This volume draws on the experience and extensive research of an international authorship to bring together details on slope stability, causes of landslides, landslide prevention, new techniques for assessing and predicting stability, new methods for stabilising slopes and the special considerations for coastal situations.

Very useful. I used the book to aid my study on the Iron Bridge WHS, I think it was very thorough and useful.
