Written by a leading proponent of the Alexander Technique, "Anatomy of the Moving Body" offers movement educators a basic manual that provides not only drawings and names but also written lectures that tie this sometimes difficult material into a coherent series of presentations. The book is divided into accessible sections that present muscles and joints in a clear and concise manner without oversimplifying or leaving out necessary details. Each of the 31 chapters covers a basic region of the body. Included is information about bones;origins and attachments of muscles and related actions; joints, major ligaments, and actions at joints; major functional structures such as the pelvis, shoulder girdle, ankle, and hand; etymology of anatomical terms; major landmarks and human topography; and structures relating to breathing and vocalization.
