Skeletal Muscle Mechanics: From Mechanisms to Function summarises the variety of approaches used by today's scientist to understand muscle function and the mechanisms of contraction. This book contains research by leading scientists from numerous fields using many different scientific techniques. Topics covered include:
* Cellular and molecular mechanisms of skeletal muscle contraction
* Historical perspective of muscle research
* The newest developments in techniques for the determination of the mechanical properties of single cross-bridges
* Theoretical modelling of muscle contraction and force production
* Multifaceted approaches to determine the in vivo function of skeletal muscle
This state-of-the-art account is written by internationally recognised authors and will be a valuable resource to researchers of biomechanics in sports science and exercise physiology.

I expect this book to be excellent and timely. Professor R. McNeill Alexander FRS, School of Biology, University of Leeds, UK
