To most people in the developed world, Nepal is an unspoilt Shangri-La of spectacular scenery and remote picturesque villages. This book goes behind the glossy tourist brochures to examine the reality of a complex and rapidly changing society. Nepal: New Horizons? examines the changes in people's attitudes to the traditional monarchy and rigid social structures, and describes the reality of life in a society which is undergoing a major change as a result of contact with Western influences - particularly tourism.

Assesses the extent to which the Group of Seven (G7) has been successful in its management of major currencies since the 1970s. The G7 has been effective in moving the U.S. dollar, yen and euro in the intended direction at horizons of up to three months after G7 meetings, but not at longer horizons. The findings indicate that the reputation and credibility of the G7, as well as its ability to form and communicate a consensus among individual G7 members, are important determinants for the G7¿s ability to manage major currencies. This paper concludes by analyzing the factors that help the G7 bu

This paper examines a small area west of Verrill Canyon on the Scotian Slope to address whether sedimentological and geomechanical features of piston cores would explain the localized occurrence of sediment failures. The seabed in the area was divided into zones of disturbed, undisturbed, and erosional areas, and six continuous acoustic reflectors were traced throughout the area from high-resolution acoustic records. Nine sediment cores, providing a composite stratigraphy of the acoustic section, are described and the relationship of the failure horizons to core lithology and physical properti
