Evolution of the mammals has predominantly effected change in the head region and the distal segments of the limbs. Insights into the evolution of the head region are available from published material, but there has been no serious attempt at an overall evolutionary synthesis for the limbs. This book is an attempt to provide such phylogenetic insights. The author promotes the view that such an approach leads to a more enlightened understanding of human anatomy. The book is aimed at those concerned with human evolution and surgeons and others requiring a detailed understanding of the anatomy of the human hand and foot.
