This atlas can accompany and augment any human anatomy, human physiology or combined human anatomy and physiology textbook. It is designed to be of particular value to students in a laboratory situation and could either accompany a laboratory manual or, in certain courses, it could serve as the laboratory manual.
Great care has gone into the preparation of this photographic atlas to provide students with a complete set of photographs for each of the human body systems. Cat, fetal pig, and rat dissection are also included for those students who have the opportunity to do similar dissections as part of their laboratory requirement. In addition, photographs of a sheep heart dissection are also included.
A visual balance is achieved between the various levels available to observe the structure of the body. Completely labeled, informative figures are depicted clearly and accurately. The terms used in this atlas are those that are approved and recommended by the Basle Nomina Anatomica (BNA).
Some of the changes for this new edition include a new art program, new vertebrate dissection images (new specimens were dissected to obtain better quality photographs of the muscular and organ systems), and a new full page heart valve/cardiac cycle figure.

Anatomy of Movement presents a dynamic, integrated approach to the study of the physical structures of the musculoskeletal system and their functional relationship to the movements of the human body. In clear and concise text illustrated with more than a thousand graphic drawings, the author guides the reader on a lively tour of the muscles, bones, ligaments and joints of the arms, legs and trunk. The focus throughout the book is on anatomy not for its own sake, but in its functional relationship to the actual movements of the body in dance, exercise, and other physical disciplines. In this newly-revised edition, a majority of the thousand-plus illustrations are new or have been modified by the author from the original edition. The text has also been updated, and the sequencing of the presentation of the musculoskeletal anatomy has been revised in part.
