Reviews

From the reviews: “The Three Gorges dam and reservoir project is, without doubt, one of the most extraordinary engineering projects of the last 50 years. The statistics of the project are impressive … . The book is extensive, detailed, well-presented and highly informative, and generally written in good English. … the papers contained within the volume are valuable and interesting. Indeed, several present interesting new approaches to landslide investigation, analysis, and mitigation, and I am sure that many of these techniques will find widespread application elsewhere.” (David N. Petley, Mountain Research and Development, Vol. 30 (2), May, 2010)
