Abstract

his book provides a comprehensive account of a unique pioneering longitudinal study of human growth that continues to contribute to our knowledge and raise new questions 60 years after it commenced. Although over 200 scientific publications have arisen from the study, this book describes, in a single volume, the key researchers involved, the Australian Aboriginal people from Yuendumu who participated in the study, and the main outcomes. The findings have provided new insights into how teeth function, as well as factors affecting oral health and physical growth. General readers, as well as students and researchers, will find much of interest in this volume.

Abstract

Modern warfare is a unique cultural phenomenon. While many conflicts in
history have produced dramatic shifts in human behaviour, the industrialized
nature of modern war possesses a material and psychological intensity that
embodies the extremes of our behaviours, from the total economic mobilization
of a nation state to the unbearable pain of individual loss. Fundamentally,
war is the transformation of matter through the agency of destruction,
and the character of modern technological warfare is such that it simultaneously
creates and destroys more than any previous kind of conflict.
