This book is not, in any case, in total defiance of the Wise Old Man's admonition, for it is not an entirely new book. Rather, it is an outgrowth of a previous treatise, written a decade ago, entitled "Soil and Water: Physical Principles and Processes." The book provides a comprehensive information on physical properties of soil and water, soil water interaction, movement of water in saturated and unsaturated soil, vapour movement, water management in a watershed, soil air, soil temperature and soil colour. Self explanatory diagrams have been included for better understanding of the ://   The book is divided into six chapters covering the stability of slopes, landslides, load-bearing capacity and settlement of shallow foundations and pile foundations, soil mechanics in road construction, and the improvement of the physical characteristics of soil with special emphasis on machine foundations and earthquakes, giving detailed Soil physics is the study of soil physical properties and processes, including measurement and prediction under natural and managed ecosystems. The science of soil physics deals with the forms
