9780521564380: Patterns of Human Growth (Cambridge Studies in Biological and Evolutionary Anthropology)

This new, completely revised and updated edition provides a synthesis of the forces that shaped the evolution of the human growth pattern, the biocultural factors that direct its expression, the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that regulate individual development, and the biomathematical approaches that are needed to analyze and interpret human growth. After covering the history, philosophy, and basic biological principles of human development, the book turns to the evolution of the human life cycle. Later chapters explore the physiological, environmental, and cultural reasons for population variation in growth, and the genetic and endocrine factors that regulate individual development, providing a comprehensive explanation for the functional and adaptive significance of human growth patterns. The final chapter integrates all this information into a truly interactive biocultural model of human development.

Book Description:

This comprehensively revised and updated new edition of a successful undergraduate text provides an integrated anthropological, evolutionary and biocultural approach to the study of human growth and development. It retains the unique style and focus of the previous edition, established as the primary text in the subject for all those needing an anthropological and biocultural perspective. Coverage of the evolution of the human life pattern is expanded following rapid and exciting developments in the field since it was brought to prominence in the previous edition.

Review:

From reviews of the first edition...

"The appealing aspect of this treatise on human growth is the attention given to evolutionary issues." Virginia C. Maiorana, Evolutionary Theory

"...perhaps the first genuinely anthropological text on human growth. Written from an evolutionary point of view, the book attempts to place human growth into an ecological and phylogenetic context...a provocative book, bringing an anthropological perspective to a field long practiced by anthropologists." Rebecca Huss-Ashmore, Medical Anthropology Quarterly
