First published in 1983 this book provides a review of the fundamentals of the biology and mechanics of human skin. The major theme is the interaction between and dependence of the integrity of skin on, cell turnover, nutrition, control mechanisms and disease. Mechanical, thermal and electrical properties are presented separately in a way that should allow the mathematically inexperienced reader to understand the principles but with sufficient detail to permit development of more advanced ideas. Discussion of environmental effects on skin includes cosmetics, solar radiation and clinical treatments. An account of methods of wound closure and of the recent attempts to find a substitute for skin completes an overview of this fascinating tissue.
