Summary This volume presents a collection of twenty-seven contributions, covering the whole of the research area in human growth and development. It is highly international in the provenance of both authors and subjects, from Kathmandu to Caracas, Oaxaca to Alice Springs. There are papers on the history of the study of human growth, on the modelling of individual growth curves, the construction of population growth reference curves, growth as a measure of population well-being, secular trend, and the much neglected subject of the relation between mental and physical development.
