Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an excellent volume that pulls together much of the existing research literature on hormones and health where data have been collected under realistic field conditions. It will provide graduate students and professionals a foundation for understanding this area of research and moving into it. At the same time, I think that this work must be seen as pointing toward future work that will extend and refine our understanding of these processes." Human Biology

"This book is a wonderful advertisement for human biology as practiced by anthropologists...a gem and a must read..." American Journal of Human Biology

"This book represents fine contemporary scholarship in biological anthropology, and I will be using the opening chapter as required reading in anthropology graduate classes. But perhaps the greatest value of this book is in communicating exciting developments in anthropology to researchers interested in development, health, and human biology." The Quarterly Review of Biology
