This volume covers a wide arena, and truly reflects the nature of anthropology as an integrated discipline. This volume is divided into five sections—

I. Ecology, Demography and Health;

II. Human Biology;

III. Medical Anthropology;

IV. Human Rights and

V. Development, Society and Its Future

— consisting in total twenty-one research papers.

An overview of the volume shows that today anthropology is not concerned with the study of primitive and peasant societies but has included in its scope urban and industrial societies. It is equally concerned with the issues of human development and progress and has become far more integrated.
