The Human Body II Series


While it is tempting to think of the human body merely as a single entity or unit, such a construction obscures the vital role played by our body's complex individual systems. Acting in conjunction, the ear, nose, and throat, for example, or the kidneys and renal system, all ensure that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Accompanied by detailed color diagrams, these exhaustive volumes examine the physiology of the body's most fundamental structures, as well as the diseases and disorders to which they are vulnerable.
