Over the past thirty years, a new breed of 'anthropometric historians' has tracked how populations around the world have changed in stature. Height, they’ve concluded, is a kind of biological shorthand: a composite code for all the factors that make up a society’s well-being.  In our height lies the tale of our birth and upbringing, of our social class, daily diet, and health-care coverage. In our height lies our history
