Human Growth and Development pulls together information from leading experts in a variety of fields to create a one-volume resource on the human growth stages, environmental effects, and the research methods scientists should use. This text promises to be a great course-planning guide for instructors in various medical and scientific fields in addition to a thorough reference for further research.

* Both biological and bio-medical approaches to human development.
* Chapters on research methods of growth data collection.
* Annotated reference lists for every chapter.
* Tremendous breadth of knowledge within a single source.

This book has its origins in my own lectures on human growth and development given to undergraduates attending British and South African universities over
the last 25 years. In 1976, while studying for my doctoral degree under the supervision of James Tanner at London University’s Institute of Child Health, I was asked
to give an annual series of lectures to Biological Anthropology students at Cambridge University. The late William Marshall, who had been the “reader” in Tanner’s department before taking the professorship and chair in Human Biology at
Loughborough University, had previously given these lectures. At about the same
time, the geneticist Alan Bittles, then a senior lecturer in Human Biology at Chelsea
College, London University, asked me to provide a similar series of lectures to
his students.
Faced with the prospect of two series of lectures, I searched the available literature to determine what I could use as sources to write the lectures and what I
could recommend to students.
