Abstract and Keywords

This book explores the growth research literatures in obesity. It specifically determines the most vital issues about obesity that are still unknown; despite the large research literature, many important questions remain unanswered. The book is also intended for researchers in every social science discipline, and serves to both bring them up to date on the relevant research in their own discipline, and allow them to quickly and easily understand the cutting-edge research being produced by other disciplines. It then presents a Rosetta Stone with the ultimate objective of facilitating discussion and collaboration across disciplines in order to achieve research breakthroughs. The book also provides something that has never before existed: primers and crash courses on the study of obesity from a wide variety of disciplinary perspectives.

Keywords: obesity, social science, Rosetta Stone
