Hello everyone,

I have been asked by my department chair to recommend a chapter out of a
biomechanics textbook that we could use in our introductory course
(previously called EPE 200 Introduction to Exercise Science and Physical
Education; soon to be called KIN 200 Introduction to Kinesiology). Rather
than use one textbook for this course, we are looking into assembling a
collection of readings from the different specialty areas (e.g., exercise
physiology, motor behavior, biomechanics, sport psychology, pedagogy, etc.).

The biomechanics reading I have been charged with finding should contain a
good introduction to our field (biomechanics, that is) and include
definitions of terms, information on our history, topics of research, and
professional organizations (among other things).

I am not familiar with a textbook that has all of the above information in
its introductory chapter. Do any of you have any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.
