This book presents to the student of medicine and dentistry an account of anatomical facts necessary to appreciate structural organisation of the Head and Neck. Considering the demand for change in both the presentation and methodology of teaching anatomy, the format of this edition has been changed accordingly. The diagrams have been put within the text, instead of on double spread sheets, to facilitate reading. The positive aspect of a compact text with important structural details has been retained. Emphasis has been put on some “key structures” of a part which will be helpful in clear understanding of that region and create a reinforcement of learning. The diagrams restrict themselves to the identification of structures while the text restricts it self to important features or the region thereby completing what is essential knowledge. To make the diagrams realistic colour has been used lavishly. Colour captures a reality that is more consistent with the mode of learning and has become an increasingly important element for most of the students today. The author hopes that students will find this second edition useful and a comprehensive study guide to the anatomy of head and neck.
