As widespread social transformations have been paralleled by gains in health and life expectancy through public health and other improvements, a variety of other challenges to health have emerged, particularly in lifestyle related, behaviourally mediated changes in rates of chronic disease. Hormones, Health and Behavior looks at the relationship of human biology and human society at the intersection of behavior, hormones and health. There is both scientific interest and practical urgency behind the ideas and findings presented here, as the need for a socio-ecological view of function and well-being has become more apparent. This book documents an emerging understanding of how hormones create linkage between behavior or social life and health. It will inform graduate students and researchers interested in human sciences, human development, anthropology, epidemiology, public environmental and reproductive health.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is an excellent volume that pulls together much of the existing research literature on hormones and health where data have been collected under realistic field conditions. It will provide graduate students and professionals a foundation for understanding this area of research and moving into it. At the same time, I think that this work must be seen as pointing toward future work that will extend and refine our understanding of these processes." Human Biology
"This book is a wonderful advertisement for human biology as practiced by anthropologists...a gem and a must read..." American Journal of Human Biology
"This book represents fine contemporary scholarship in biological anthropology, and I will be using the opening chapter as required reading in anthropology graduate classes. But perhaps the greatest value of this book is in communicating exciting developments in anthropology to researchers interested in development, health, and human biology." The Quarterly Review of Biology
