Editorial Reviews

Christopher J. Hughes
Thisis the third edition of this text. The second edition was published in 1992. The focus continues to be comprehensive coverage of functional human anatomy and kinesiology for students and practitioners in the health sciences. The authors intend to provide a detailed and comprehensive text on kinesiology and pathokinesiology by integrating the current research literature with their own clinical experiences. A book of this nature is suitable for a class in kinesiology or functional anatomy offered in health science programs, especially physical therapy. The authors' objectives are honorable and appropriate and I believe they have succeeded in their task. This book is written as a course text that would be suitable for students enrolled in a physical therapy, occupational therapy, or athletic training program. However, it can also serve as a useful reference for practicing clinicians. The authors and contributors are credible authorities in the field of physical therapy and all hold advance degrees and are on faculty in physical therapy programs across the country. A total of fourteen chapters are included in the text. In each chapter a region or joint structure of the body is covered, with additional chapters containing adequate depth of information in biomechanical concepts, joint and muscle mechanics, posture, and gait. The most beneficial features include an abundant amount of recent and respectable references cited throughout the book, clearly written objectives in the beginning of each chapter, and many discussion questions at the end of each chapter to facilitate learning the material. The one noticeable difference from the last edition is the change in font type. Thefont is lighter and sometimes the italicized portions (study questions) are hard to read. The figures are similar than in the previous issue and some new tables have been added. There are some changes in authorship of the chapters but overall the primary authors have written all sections except the chapters on muscle structure and function, the temporomandibular joint, and the thoracic and chest wall. In my opinion the chapter on biomechanical concepts is fairly introductory but the remaining sections integrate the anatomy and kinesiology well. The authors have done a fine job updating their earlier edition. I would recommend this text as part of courses in physical and occupational therapy programs as well as athletic training curriculums. It is well written and current with a strong flavor of application. The material is well organized and ideal for a ""seminar type"" class or a traditional class in kinesiology. I strongly recommend the book for students and practicing clinicians alike.

Booknews
Presents basic principles needed to understand human kinesiology and pathokinesiology, and discusses new research and hypotheses in the field. Material is organized around general principles of structure and function that are then applied to individual joint complexes using a cephalo-caudal, proximal-distal approach. Concepts developed in earlier chapters are integrated with and applied to total body function by examining the tasks of posture and gait. Contains chapter objectives, summaries, and study questions. This third edition is clarified and reorganized, and includes new summary tables. Levangie is associate professor of physical therapy at Sacred Heart University. Norkin is former director and associate professor of physical therapy at Ohio University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
