Abstract

En este ensayo estudiamos los or�genes acad�micos de una de las ramas m�s din�micas de la historia econ�mica en las �ltimas d�cadas. Aunque hubo unos antecedentes en la d�cada de 1960 entre algunos historiadores de la escuela de los Annales, principalmente Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie, fue realmente con los trabajos de Robert Fogel y sus asociados que esta disciplina tuvo un gran auge. Tal vez la ventaja que tuvieron estos �ltimos historiadores fue que incorporaron los aspectos biol�gicos y utilizaron el instrumental estad�stico que manejan los cliometristas. A continuaci�n, se presenta una revisi�n del estado de la investigaci�n en antropometr�a hist�rica en las diferentes regiones del mundo.
