My thanks to all those who replied and contributed to the following list:

Basic orthopaedic biomechanics. Van C. Mow and Wilson C. Hayes. 1991.
Raven
Press, New York, NY. ISBN: 0-88167-796-5

Clinical biomechanics. Zeevi Dvir. 2000. Chruchill Livingstone,
Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania. ISBN: 0-443-07945-5

I have just received this one which is hot from the press and I would
describe it as an expanded Chapter 9 from White and Panjabi's "Clinical
Biomechanics of the Spine" :
"Biomechanics in the Musculoskeletal System"
Panjabi and White
Lippincott
ISBN 0-443-06585-3

Another interesting book is:
"Fundamentals of Orthopaedic Biomechanics"
Burstein and Wright
Williams & Wilkins
ISBN 0-683-01135-9

Biomechanical Analysis of the Musculoskeletal Structure for Medicine and
Sports
by A. Seireg, R. Arvikar This is a great book, but it's out of print.

Mow is probably the best reference. I would also recommend "Clinical
Biomechanics of the Spine" by White & Panjabi if you are interested in
spinal mechanics.

Try "Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injury" by Whiting and Zernicke.

Some books that I already have that I think are excellent are Skeletal
Tissue Mechanics by Matin, Burr, Sharkey, and Basic Orthopaedic Biomechanics
by Mow and Hayes.
