Product Description


"This book is really a very much-needed text and reference book which is not only immensely helpful for physical anthropologists, but also for general biologists and anatomists working on the development of the human skeleton. ...The book can whole-heartedly be recommended..." -M. Schultz for AUXOLOGIE (2002) "The text is informative and well written, and makes fluent reading. This book will become a standard reference text and should be available not only in departments of archaeology and anthropology, but also to paediatric clinicians, radiologists and lawyers." -Christine Hall in THE JOURNAL OF BONE AND JOINT SURGERY (April 2001) "Scheuer and Black have produced a much-needed reference text where previously there was mostly a void. These authors have invested heavily in researching the literature as well as museum collections in order to create Developmental Juvenile Osteology. Anyone who works with human skeletal remains in any context would greatly benefit from having this text as part of his or her library." -Lee Meadows Jantz, University of Tennessee, in AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY (2001) "It is without doubt a worthy addition to the field of anatomy and should be a strong 'must have' for anyone interested in the growing human, whether from a clinical, forensic or archeological point of view. It should also find an indispensable place on the shelves of libraries and institutions where teaching and understanding of human anatomy is an important component of any courses and their specification or curricula." -Peter Dangerfield, Liverpool University, in JOURNAL OF ANATOMY (2001) "...a welcome, long overdue contribution... The greatest achievement of this book is the combination of its unusual level of detail, top-quality illustrative material, and methodologies the authors have developed themselves, or wisely culled (and adapted) from fellow researchers. ...the book is unsurpassed in its handling of the complex anatomy of the young individual. essential volume for archaeologists and physical anthropologists in the field..." -Yoel Rak, Tel Aviv University, in JOURNAL OF HUMAN EVOLUTION (2001) "This book should be in every medical and anthropological library." -Edgar F. Allin, DOODY'S HEALTH SCIENCES BOOK REVIEW JOURNAL (2001)

Format: Hardcover
At first it may seem that the price tag is a little high on this book but once you start to delve into the depths you quickly realise that this book was not written in 6 months and must have taken years of painstaking research. It is a fascinating book for anyone who has even the most fleeting of interests in the subject and for those who actually work in the field - it is little short of a God send.

A must-have reference book 5 Dec. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a first rate holistic treatment of sub-adult osteology. The text covers the entire juvenile skeleton. Chapters contain drawings of each skeletal element, descriptions of growth, unique developmental attributes and in some cases, illustration of the element through different growth stages to see the sequence of changes of the bone up to adulthood.
The usefulness of this text is comparable to Tim White's Human Osteology. The White book uses extensive real life photos with text description and predominantly covers adult morphology. This juvenile osteology book craftfully uses hand drawings and color illustration to depict the skeleton and muscle attachments. Although it may seem pricely, this is a must-have reference book for those students and researchers interested in human osteology, growth and development, forensics and comparative anatomy.

Needs more... 26 July 2004
By Christine - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I disagree with the many reviews which compare this text to White's Human Osteology. While there is no doubt that the text is informative and the treatment of the subject thorough, Scheuer's text lacks enough illustrations to make it worth the buy for practical use in identifying fragmented juvenile or infant remains. White's text provides at least one photo and description of each bone, usually from every angle. When Scheuer releases a second addition, with far less text, and more photos or illustrations for osteologists who do not have access to a skeletal collection of juvenile and infant bones, then it will be worth the buy.

Very Informative 15 Feb. 2013
By CB - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I am writing to disagree with the reviewer who said that the book has too much text. It is the lengthy description and explanation that makes this book worth having! The book isn't simply for identification of skeletal remains, but for understanding the developmental processes of the skeleton (as well as some extras, such as why a feature may be particularly important in skeletal analysis, or the history of studying such-and-such bone, etc.). I think it succeeds in this.

In my opinion, the best part of this textbook is its enormous bibliography. For many classes it has helped me find much more relevant sources than PubMed and the like. I have heard a few say that they have found some faulty information in the text of the book, but that is what the bibliography is for (I never trust textbooks 100%, anyway).
