Skin and Bones
by Robert D. Cohen

This is the last of a series of books describing the history, science, medicine, artistic representation and cuisine of various body parts.

The first was Man and the Liver – the role of the liver, from early times to the present (Matador, December 2011), followed by NEPHROSAPIENS, dealing with the kidney (Matador, December 2011) and SPLANCREAS – spleen, pancreas, heart, lungs, brain and testicles (Matador, January 2013) and A Muscle Odyssey – history, evolution, embryology, anatomy, physiology, pathology of muscle and its roles in art and music (Matador, March 2013). Robert D. Cohen has divided Skin and Bone into separate sections for skin and bone, though they often overlap.

Chapter 1 covers the evolution, anatomy and physiology of the skin. Chapter 2 details skin diseases, Chapter 3 is on the evolution, anatomy, physiology and biochemistry of bone and Chapter 4 informs the reader about bone diseases. The book also contains a glossary and an index. Like Robert’s previous books, Skin and Bone will appeal to readers interested in human biology.
