Summary "The association of particular kinds of behavior with particular varieties of physique is a frequently observed phenomenon of human nature. In American culture, for example, it requires no extensive investigation to reveal that characteristic differences in behavior are frequently associated with differences in sex, with differences in physical maturity, and with certain differences in race. In cases where grouped data do not reveal such associations, case studies frequently show the importance of the individual's physique as a factor in his personal adjustment. It is with certain aspects of this problem that we are concerned in this publication, namely, the relation between social behavior and personality and normal and pathological variations in physical size, strength, motor ability, sensory acuity, and health. The authors' motivation in preparing this publication has been to bring together what is known in this area and to point out problems for investigation"--Preface.
