This book deals with the analysis of slopes, discussing the similarities and differences between natural and man-made slopes, and between soil and rock slopes. It studies the choice and use of conventional methods of analysis and their limitations, and the performance of analyses in practice, and the role of progressive failure in particular. New concepts and approaches, both deterministic and probabilistic, are also presented.
