Reviews

Review of the hardback: 'Far more than a laboratory manual for the practising palaeopathologist, it effectively combines the subject with perspectives from archaeology, demography and historical epidemiology. It exemplifies the potential of such integration for understanding the health dynamics and ecology of past communities and it will undoubtedly be the subject's standard reference for many years to come.' Alan Bilsborough, The Times Higher Education Supplement
Review of the hardback: 'All human life, death and disease is here, meticulously described and remorselessly illustrated in forensic detail. This is an indispensable guide to the downside of being human.' New Scientist
Review of the hardback: 'Far more than a laboratory manual for the practising paleopathologist, it effectively combines the subject with perspectives from archaeology, demography and historical epidemiology ... it will undoubtedly be the subject's standard reference for many years to come.' Alan Bilsborough, The Times Higher Education Supplement
"All human life, death, and disease is here, meticulously described and remorselessly illustrated in forensic detail. This is an indispensable guide to the downside of being human." New Scientist
"This book is a valuable source of information mainly for physical anthropologists, historians, and students not familiar with modern human pathology. The references are excellent and cover worldwide topics related to this subspecialty." Modern Pathology
"This is a well illustrated and written text on all the aspects of human paleopathology from `abortion' to `zimenematosis'. A well indexed world class reference." Journal of American Association of Forensic Dentists
"The two medical authors have produced a major reference work for all who are interested in the history of disease and the identification of specific conditions in skeletal and mummified soft tissue remains. Aufderheide and Rodriguez-Martin are to be congratulated for producing such a well-integrated text full of interesting insights concerning the multidisciplinary field of paleopathology: old controversies are summarized, new techniques are described, and many diseases not yet recognized in ancient remains are included with the expectation that refined analysis of ancient human remains will aid in their diagnosis." R. Ted Steinbock, MD, Journal of the American Medical Association
"[The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Human Paleopathology] will be valuable to archaeologists, osteologists, paleopathologists, demographers, and medical historians. University and college libraries must add this to their collections because it offers new perspectives on the analysis of disease in past and present populations." Choice
"...the Cambridge Encyclopedia of Human Paleopathology should be a welcomed addition to the library of any paleopathology professional, upper-level graduate student interested in paleopathology or archaeologist with an advanced understanding of human anatomy." Jennifer Yaeger Fillion, SAS Bulletin
