"Overall this is an informative, timely, and extensive book on the recent Advances in Human Paleopathology and as such it should be added to one's repertoire of books to rely upon for explanations of how we arrived at our pres­ent state today and where our discipline can and should go in the future." (PaleoAnthropology, 2010)

"An excellent and detailed account of recent developments in the field of human palaeopathology. … This book offers an impressive amount of information for both students and more advanced researchers." (Paleopathology Newsletter, December 2009)

"Pinhasi and Mays have produced an excellent, balanced compilation that reflects what is currently happening in paleopathology research and that nicely addresses paleopathology as both discipline and tool, highlighting technical advanced and schooling us on how disease manifests in the human skeleton. This is valuable resource that students and professionals interested in human paloepathology should consider adding to their libraries." (American Journal of Human Biology, March 2009)
