We present Shell Model Monte Carlo calculations for nuclei within the full major shell 50-82 for both protons and neutrons. The interaction is determined solely by self-consistency and odd-even mass differences. The methods are illustrated for 124Sn, 128Te and 124Xe. We calculate shape distributions, moments of inertia and pairing correlations as functions of temperature and angular velocity. Our calculations are the first microscopic evidence of γ-softness of nuclei in this region.
