From the Inside Flap:

The second edition of Earthworks: A Guide, is an invaluable reference tool for geotechnical and engineering geologist specialists and civil engineers working in earthworks. Nothing can be built without some excavation and transfer of soil (or rock) from one part of a site to another and this makes earthworks the most common product of civil engineering operations. Although normally seen as major structures, such as earth fill dams or large highways or railway embankments, the majority of earthworks are connected with minor civil works and building construction. This guide outlines the essential processes behind cutting and embankment stability, excavation and fill placement. Discussing the practical consequences of the choices made by engineers in these areas, the guide goes on to evaluate environmental, economic and life risk factors to provide essential information and practical advice those working in earthworks engineering today. This second edition delivers essential theoretical background to the compaction process and describes some commonly available fills, including industrial materials, both from the construction and the in-service viewpoints. The guide continues with a description of design, construction control and monitoring procedures for earth fills, noting the close links between them.

Nothing can be built without some excavation and transfer of soil (or rock) from one part of a site to another and this makes earthworks the most common product of civil engineering operations.
