The Backbone of History


This collection of twenty-two papers, which originated in the 1988 meetings of the Economic History Association in Detroit, provides an interdisciplinary assessment of health and nutrition among Native Americans, Euro-Americans and African-Americans across North, Central and Southern America. The papers, written by archaeologists, anthropologists, historians and archaeo-pathologists, include methodological papers, studies of specific populations or skeletal remains, case studies from the 19th and 20th centuries, and more general studies of changes in health patterns.
