A complete reworking of this anatomy textbook, the eighth edition has a new format to make it easier to use. It begins with a discussion of anatomical principles and the organization and function of the systems of the body. A new feature is an outline of embryology, which along with a description of the nervous system, provides a basis for understanding adult structure. Subsequent chapters follow in a logical dissection order beginning with the upper limb, head, neck, trunk, and ending with the lower limb. More than 500 illustrations illuminate the text, providing a coverage comparable to most atlases, and there are copious clinical notes, summary tables, and discussions of applied anatomy. Current terminology is used throughout and a glossary is included.
