Product Description:
 
Identification of Pathological Conditions in Human Skeletal Remains provides an integrated and comprehensive treatment of pathological conditions that affect the human skeleton. There is much that ancient skeletal remains can reveal to the modern orthopaedist, pathologist, forensic anthropologist, and radiologist about the skeletal manifestations of diseases that are rarely encountered in modern medical practice.

Beautifully illustrated with over 1,100 photographs and drawings, this book provides essential text and materials on bone pathology, which will improve the diagnostic ability of those interested in human dry bone pathology. It also provides time depth to our understanding of the effect of disease on past human populations.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Amazing book!, March 04, 2014
By Lea
This book is so in-depth it's worth the buy. Definitely a must-have in any biological anthropologists' library. Don Ortner does an amazing job with explaining everything you could ever need to know when beginning your journey with paleopathology. It's constantly called the paleopathology bible! Definitely recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars.  Very poor photo quality in this printing, December 21, 2012
By Anthropologist
Just received a copy of this book (a second copy for my lab), and the quality of this printing is terrible. The paper used is different (not glossy like previous printings). As a result, the quality of the photographs is very poor - which is very problematic for a book on paleopathology. I will be returning this book immediately. If you are thinking about purchasing this book, please be aware that the printing may be problematic.

4.0 out of 5 stars.  A Word of Caution, May 15, 2008
By Moddy
Although in general this is a great text on paleopathology, some pictures depict the wrong pathology being described. Hopefully this will be corrected in later editions.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Most Comprehensive Ever, January 29, 2004
By A customer
I think that the thing I found most helpful about this book, is that the illustrations show normal articulation and then have the traumatized area together for easier comparisons. This book covers everything from cellular biology to disease pathology and histology. It's worth the money to have this book as a resource in your library.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  The Bible of Paleopath, December 05, 2003
By A customer
This book is the Bible of Paleopathology. I have the first edition of this book and it has been indispensible to me since I first bought it years ago. Any serious skeletal biology or human osteology student should own a copy of this book.
