Anatomy and Human Movement: Structure and Function, Second Edition, is concerned with the musculoskeletal system and its application to human movement. The design of this new edition builds on the success of the first edition. There has been some reorganization of the text and illustrations for better clarity, as well as new sections on the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive and urogenital systems, and on the eye and ear. Apart from introductory sections (terminology; components of the musculoskeletal system; embryology; and skin, its appendages and special senses), the book has three sections dealing with the musculoskeletal system: the upper limb, the lower limb, and the head, neck and trunk. In addition there is a fourth section on the nervous system. Each musculoskeletal section is presented in a similar way beginning with a study of the bones, to provide the basic framework of the section. This is followed by a description of the muscles, which are considered in functional groups in an attempt to explain how movement is produced. Finally, the joints are described and discussed, building on the knowledge gained from a consideration of the bones and muscles: this last part of each section also serves to bring together the preceding parts. This book was written for the student of anatomy who wishes to use this knowledge functionally and desires an understanding of the mechanisms enabling movement to take place.

Veterinary Neuroanatomy: A Clinical Approach is written by veterinary neurologists for anyone with an interest in the functional, applied anatomy and clinical dysfunction of the nervous system in animals, especially when of veterinary significance. It offers a user-friendly approach, providing the principal elements that students and clinicians need to understand and interpret the results of the neurological examination. Clinical cases are used to illustrate key concepts throughout. The book begins with an overview of the anatomical arrangement of the nervous system, basic embryological development, microscopic anatomy and physiology. These introductory chapters are followed by an innovative, hierarchical approach to understanding the overall function of the nervous system. The applied anatomy of posture and movement, including the vestibular system and cerebellum, is comprehensively described and illustrated by examples of both function and dysfunction. The cranial nerves and elimination systems as well as behaviour, arousal and emotion are discussed. The final chapter addresses how to perform and interpret the neurological examination. Veterinary Neuroanatomy: A Clinical Approach has been prepared by experienced educators with 35 years of combined teaching experience in neuroanatomy. Throughout the book great care is taken to explain key concepts in the most transparent and memorable way whilst minimising jargon. Detailed information for those readers with specific interests in clinical neuroanatomy is included in the text and appendix.

It is always reinforcing and rewarding for an author when the publisher of a book requests another edition. I have now had this pleasure fi ve times aft er the fi rst edition of this atlas was published 34 years ago in 1975. Previous editions, as well as this edition, have benefi ted greatly by the many suggestions from colleagues and especially students. Students oft en approach this in a thoughtful subtle manner. First, the student may say how much he or she has learned from the book and give praise to the nature and color of the fi gures and then point out a mistaken label in one of the fi gures that may not have caught my eye. Of course, I am always grateful for these suggestions. In this edition, I have added many new fi gures—for example, 14 new fi gures on 5 plates dealing with the brachial plexus. At the same time, a few fi gures that did not prove to be excellent teaching items have been removed. Perhaps the most important change in the book is the addition of a signifi cant number of X-rays, CT scans, and ultrasound scans. I am most grateful to Edward J. H. Nathanial, M.D., Ph.D., Emeritus Professor at the University of Winnipeg School of Medicine in Canada, for providing at least 15 fi gures of clinical signifi cance. Several fi gures also were contributed by Dr. G.L. Colborn, Emeritus Professor from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, Georgia. I have also had the pleasure of discussions with Dr. James D. Collins, Professor of Radiologic Sciences here at UCLA. I thank Dr. Constantine Karakousis, Professor of Surgery and Chief of Surgical Oncology at the University of Buff alo in Buff alo, New York, for the use of several of his fi gures and for comments on the clinical importance of several plates. Certain X-rays from Dr. Lothar Wicke’s 6th English edition of Atlas of Radiologic Anatomy, edited by Dr. Anna Taylor here at UCLA, were also used. Th ere are more than 200 plates of clinical importance in this atlas, and I have benefi ted greatly from my discussions and collaboration with Professor Gerald Buckberg, M.D., Professor of Cardiac Surgery here at UCLA, and the late Dr. F. Torrent Guasp from Madrid, Spain, on the progressive unfolding of cardiac muscle as shown in Plate 186. Th ese studies have given insightful information on the manner by which the heart muscle develops and matures. Most of the fi gures in this atlas come from the Sobotta atlases, recent editions of which have been published by Professor R. Putz in Munich, Germany, and Professor R. Pabst in Hanover, Germany. My deepest appreciation to these two brilliant anatomists knows no bounds. Th eir German editions of Sobotta have been recently reproduced as the 14th English Edition in 2006. A number of drawings, some of which were also used in the 5th edition, were made by a former resident artist here at UCLA, Ms. Jill Penkhus. I am most grateful for her artistic creativity. I am most indebted to the editors at Lippincott Williams & Wilkins in Baltimore, and especially to Ms. Crystal Taylor, with whom I have interacted for more than 20 years on several earlier editions of this atlas, and Ms. Julie Montalbano, the Product Manager of this edition. Here at UCLA, I am privileged to have worked with outstanding associates who form the gross anatomy faculty for both the medical and dental school at this university. Th ese include Dr. Shelley Metten, the Chairperson of the Anatomy Division, and Drs. Robert Trelease, Richard Braun, Joseph Miller, Elena Stark, Yau Shi Lin, Jonathan Wisco, Quynh Pham, Guido Zampighi, David Hovda, Anna Taylor, Robin Fisher, Charles Olmstead, Francesco Chiappelli, and Jayc Sedlmayr. Dr. Sedlmayr is now on the faculty of the Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans. In my 57 years of active teaching here at UCLA, collectively, these anatomists are the fi nest anatomy colleagues I have ever worked with. Finally, but by no means least, I must say that my wife, Julie, has been a steadfast inspiration to me and my academic life, and I am eternally grateful to her. Carmine D.

AFTER ten years' preparation the first edition of our Atlas of Human Anatomy was published between 1946 and 1951. Our experience enabled us to improve each of the subsequent editions and the present one has also been thoroughly revised and enlarged to allow the inclusion of more instructive illus trations. Throughout we have adhered to our original intention that this work should be a well propor tioned Atlas of life-like illustrations primarily for medical students but also useful to the practising physician and surgeon. The introduction of topographical illustrations in the third volume has been welcomed by readers and, while not embarking on histology, semi-microscopic figures have been introduced into some chapters for a better understanding of function. We did not deviate without reason from the currently accepted methods of illustrating the elements of the different systems such as bones, joints, muscles, vessels and nerves and we were at pains to base our illustrations on original dissections and to include in them only essential details. The use of colour in the illustrations, introduced by the Italian anatomist Aselli (1627), was with didactic intent. The legends to the illustrations of this edition use the nomenclature of the "Nomina Anatomica", Paris 1955 (PNA) , as revised in New York in 1960.
