Booknews
Studies collected here demonstrate the ways in which dermatoglyphics can be used to understand problems in human variability, and show how dermatoglyphic research continues to provide important evidence on the origins and migrations of our ancestors, genetic inheritance, the historic linkages of populations, and individual susceptibility to a variety of diseases and behaviors. Material originated at a 1998 International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences Congress held in Williamsburg, Virginia. Durham is past president of the American Dermatoglyphic Association and editor of its newsletter. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
