The present volumes endeavour to integrate different subdivisions of anatomy to enable students of anatomy to learn all the relevant aspects of a topic like osteology, soft parts, development and clinical application at the same time. It is a common knowledge that bone carries our anatomy and forms its central part. As such, each topic begins with a brief description of the skeletal framework of the region followed by the description of the surrounding soft parts. The study of soft parts does not merely lie in parroting of relations of structures but it essentially relies on visualization of parts and regions based on dissection and diagrams. Anatomy, if not understood in its proper perspective and only memorised in parts, tends to be forgotten. Anatomy per se is a visual science and the best methods of visual recall of structural interrelationship are simple diagrams. Line diagrams which can be easily reproduced constitute an important feature of the book. Besides, this book is profusely illustrated. Every mutual relationship of soft structures has been explained by well-placed diagrams.

It is widely recognised that anatomy can be made interesting, easy to understand and assimilate by dealing with its clinical application. At the end of each topic under the heading Clinical Application, close relationships existing between the regional anatomy and clinical medicine are explained. Thus, the book is meant to be very useful to the students during their clinical years also.

It is hoped that the book will be highly useful for students of M.B.B.S.
