The result is a rich resource full of detailed and relevant information on all aspects of growth and development across the human life span ! no other current work looks at growth and development in this same way.' Library Journal 'The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Human Growth and Development displays all the usual qualities which have come to mark these books out as outstanding works of reference ! anyone interested in the subject will not be disappointed.' New Scientist 'The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Human Growth and Development has something for everyone: genetics, embryology, environmental influences, endocrinology, secular trends, history, and biography.' British Medical Journal ' ! this book may be viewed as the 'Britannica' for human growth and development.' Lee Meadows Jantz, American Journal of Physical Anthropology 'The editors are to be congratulated on a splendid achievement. They have produced a wonderfully organized and illustrated text; to dip into it will be a continuing source of information and pleasure. No department that has anything to do with human biology should be without it.' Journal of Biosocial Science
