Patterns of Human Growth by Barry Bogin

Book Description

This completely revised 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 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. This edition will continue to be the primary text for students of human growth in anthropology, psychology and education.
