Food Composition Data: A User's Perspective
Edited by William M. Rand, Carol T. Windham, Bonita W. Wyse, and Vemon R. Young

Knowledge of the composition of the foods we eat is of critical importance, and yet, the available data are extremely inadequate. Food composition data play a key part in research and policy relating to public health, dietetics, nutrition, and epidemiology and are crucial to all phases of food production and manufacturing. In this volume, prominent workers in the field pin-point the problems and offer concrete steps to remedying the situation.

Research Methods in Nutritional Anthropology
Edited by Gretel H. Pelto, Pertti I. Pelto, and Ellen Messer

A comprehensive manual of anthropological methodologies applicable to field studies in nutrition, this volume describes strategies of field research in nutritional anthropology, determinants and cultural components of food intake, methods for collecting and analysing data on energy expenditures, and statistical methods for nutritional anthropology.

WHTR-9/UNUP-632 ISBN 92-808-0632-7 218 pages, 16.4 x 23.9 cm, paper bound, US$20

Positive deviance refers to children who grow and develop well in impoverished environments where most children are victims of malnutrition and chronic illness. These exceptional children are important as examples of successful child care behaviour and community support systems that can be applied when designing policies and programmes aimed at the malnourished. The first half of this volume discusses the relationships between child growth and care-giver-child interactions, mother-child characteristics, and the social support systems in which the interactions arise and are sustained. Part 1 closes with conclusions and policy and programme recommendations. The second half offers a guide to future research, including goals, solutions to methodological problems, and a pilot project model.
