Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Carefully edited.... This volume could be used as a supplement in an upper-division course in human biology, biological anthropology, and demography." American Journal of Human Biology
From The Critics
The contributors represent disciplines ranging from evolution to pediatrics, but mostly anthropology, and are from countries ranging from India to Spain, but mostly Britain and the US. They write for researchers in other specialties, which means the technical level should be accessible to general readers as well. The glossary does not indicate pronunciation. The 10 studies are from a 2000 workshop of the Biosocial Society, held in Oxford, England. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
