The Growth of Humanity Barry Bogin The growth of human populations and human physical growth are intimately related, and their combined study links several fields including anthropology, demography, economics, and history. The Growth of Humanity provides an introduction to key concepts, methods of research, and essential discoveries in the fields of human demography and human growth and development, particularly in relation to disease, nutrition, and aging. This book explains the evolution and significance of human life history, especially human childhood and adolescence, and shows how new stages of human development lead inextricably to the growth of the entire human population. Providing a comprehensive and exciting biocultural perspective into the uses of demography in the real world, this first volume in the new Wiley series, Foundations of Human Biology, explains how and why the way people grow leads to greater human reproductive success than that of any other mammal. Written in an appealing, accessible style, The Growth of Humanity reviews such topics as: How populations grow: history, methods, and principles of demography Basic principles of human growth and development Evolution of human life history Food, demography, and growth Migration and human health Anthropometric history The aging of humanity And much more The Growth of Humanity is appropriate as an introduction for graduate students and advanced undergraduates studying human growth/development and demography while also proving to be a fascinating read for demographers, anthropologists, and human biologists.
