The third edition of this foundation text - based on the concepts of the original text, "Neuromechanical Basis of Kinesiology" - features a new title that reflects its application to a broader array of human movement capabilities. This text expands on previous editions and retains popular features from the original text. Although expanded and updated, it still integrates biomechanics and neurophysiology to provide a theoretical framework for the study of human movement. This edition presents a more systematic and practical approach to problem solving, as well as updated content, and a CD-ROM support package for lecturers. Features include: bulleted summaries of each part which recap important learning points for students; a glossary of terms and three appendices with conversion factors and other background information; specific illustrations of the neuromechanics behind sport and rehabilitation movements; checklists to help students and teachers focus quickly; examples in each chapter, including figures, tables and equations; and more than 1500 updated references, plus a suggested reading list at the end of each chapter.

Roger M. Enoka, PhD, is an internationally acclaimed teacher and researcher and author of the groundbreaking first edition of this book, Neuromechanical Basis of Kinesiology.
Dr. Enoka is a professor in the department of kinesiology and applied physiology at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He has been deeply involved in the field of the integration of biomechanics and neuromuscular physiology for 25 years and has been teaching many of the concepts described in this book since the 1970s. He has conducted an interdisciplinary research program that has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health for almost two decades.
Dr. Enoka was a biomechanist in the department of biomedical engineering at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation from 1993 to 1996 and was a professor in the department of physiology at the University of Arizona from 1981 to 1993.
Dr. Enoka is a member of the American Society of Biomechanics, which he served as president of from 1989 to 1990. Other professional affiliations include the American College of Sports Medicine, the American Physiological Society, and the Society of Neuroscience. He is a former member of the Advisory Panel on Research for the American Physical Therapy Association and the Respiratory and Applied Physiology Study Section of the National Institutes of Health.
