Book Description:

The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Human Growth & Development summarises current understanding of human growth and development.

Review:

"Written by many distinguished academics from around the world, this work presents human growth and development in short, easy-to-understand chapters. The result is a rich resource full of detailed and relevant information on all aspects of growth and development across the human life span...no other current work looks at growth and development in this same way." Library Journal

"Many interesting topics not covered in other sources appear here.... The Cambridge Encylclopedia of Human Growth and Development will be most useful for academic health-sciences and social-sciences collections, but large public libraries where there is sufficient interest will also want to consider it." Reference Books Bulletin

"This is an engaging book for clinicians and scientists interested in the field of human growth and development. The enormous breadth of material that represents a wide variety of disciplines, clear and precise writing, and a combination of historical and contemporary knowledge combine to make this an outstanding text that will be read for many years. The editors and contributors are experts in their areas, and they have brought the latest information into each discussion. The reader comes away with scholarly knowledge about all aspects of physical measurement and an appreciation of the influence of genetic, physiological, social, economic, and nutritional variables on human growth." Martin T. Stein, MD, Doody Publishng, Inc.

"The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Human Growth and Development will be most useful for academic health-sciences and social-sciences collections...." Booklist

"This fine reference provides overviews of measurement, fetal and postnatal development, genetic and environmental influences, basic and changing growth patterns over the life span, cognitive and behavioral development,abnormalities and their causes, etc." Choice

"...this book may be viewed as the "Britannica" for human growth and development. I highly recommend it for anyone with an interest in this exciting field of study." American Journal of Physical Anthropology
