Abstract

This symposium volume brings together contributions by 24 scholars with backgrounds in anthropology, human biology, public health, epidemiology, social medicine, and other disciplines to address the theme of human biology and social inequality. The studies set out explicitly to investigate the relationships between biological and social variation in human groups and, in particular, to address the question of how social stratification mediates processes of natural selection. The scope of the volume is wide and includes population studies in developing and industrial and post-industrial countries, studies of the contemporary world and historical and archaeological perspectives, and data on a wide range of heritable biological markers.
