Written in an engaging and jargon-free style by a team of international and interdisciplinary experts, Modern Environments and Human Health
demonstrates by example how methods, theoretical approaches, and data from a wide range of disciplines can be used to resolve longstanding questions about the second epidemiological transition. The first book to address the subject from a multi-regional, comparative, and interdisciplinary perspective, Modern Environments and Human Health
is a valuable resource for students and academics in biological anthropology, economics, history, public health, demography, and epidemiology.
