It is a technical ly feasible proposition and economically sound. In a few years' time, Pariswill be only a four-hour train journey from London and cars will eb whiske d through to the Continent in well under an hour. It is, nevertheless, a vast project. In this new, comprehensive survey Deryck Abel abses himself on the extensive researches carried out from 1958 to 1960 by the Channel Tunnel Study Group. After an historical survey, covering the last 150 years, he explains the initiatives recently taken bny British, French and American interested parties. his technical survey includes teh conclusions of the geophysicists and an appraisal of engineering devices and techniques -- immersed tube, bridge, railway tunnel, road tunnel, rail-cum-road tunnel. He dealsalso with potential tunnel traffic and its conditioning factors, and final ly with the financial and legal problems involved. At a time when the Common Market and growing unity dominate European development, this book is an essential guide to a project that may well prove to be a turning point in Britain's relationship with the Continent." - from the dustjacket.

Oxford University Press, Singapore [et al], 1987, ISBN:0195826884 1987 0195826884 / 9780195826883 
ABEYASEKERE, Susan. Jakarta : A History. Singapore [et al] : Oxford University Press, 1987. Pp (4),[v]-xvii,(3),[3]-280,(2),+ 16 pp plates. Maps. Index. 8vo, illustrated grey paper-covered boards (hardcover), lettered in blue, orange, pale yellow, white and black.

"This study of Jakarta presents the first general history of the city. It follows two main themes. One is the clash between dream and reality. For nearly 400 years, governments have wanted Jakarta to be the show-piece for their policies in the Indonesian archipelago. From 1619 until 1949, the Dutch saw the city as a European enclave displaying the gifts of good government and modern technology which they brought to their East Indies. After independence, President Sukarno lavished attention on his capital, hoping to make it the pride of the nation and the Beacon of the New Emerging Forces. Since Sukarno's fall, the New Order Government has channelled investment into Jakarta and carried through extensive modernization plans in line with its general aim of economic development for Indonesia. This book looks at the consequences of those centuries of policies for Jakarta, and in particular for the vast majority of its inhabitants who have always been too poor to fit into plans for the city.

The other main theme is the rich complexity of Jakarta's population. For centuries the city grew relatively slowly, and immigrant groups of Chinese, Arabs, Europeans and Indonesians from all over the archipelago mingled to produce unique cultural forms. In the last 40 years, that intricate web has been torn apart by political changes and massive waves of Indonesian immigrants who are still struggling to create their own urban culture in a predominantly rural country." (from the back cover).
