Overview

The most recent advances in human identification are thoroughly discussed in this important new text. The twenty-five contributions to this volume demonstrate movement beyond the boundaries of forensic anthropology of only a decade ago. In Chapter 2 the role of the forensic anthropologist at scenes containing human victims, including multiple fatality incidents, fires, and serial murder investigations, is discussed. In Chapter 3, the role of the forensic anthropologist is examined in a unique type of recovery situation: death investigative work involving human rights violations. Chapter 4 discusses the cremation process and how it impacts the forensic anthropologist's role in analyzing remains. In Chapter 5, postmortem interval is discussed as well as the factors affecting decomposition, and the author provides a practical overview of recent techniques in determining time since death. Chapters 6 and 7 also discuss postmortem interval related to outdoor death scenes and assessment of time since death under markedly different environmental conditions. In Chapter 8, an overview of the morphological and metric metric approaches to sex estimations from skeletal remains is provided. Other chapters in this part discuss the criteria for sex and age determination of feral and neonatal material, as well as the Suchey-Brooks method and the pubic aging system. Other chapters in the book discuss the following topics: The Application of Histological Techniques for Age at Death Determination; A Multimedia Tool for the Assessment of Age in Immature Remains: The Electronic Encyclopedia for Maxillo-facial , Dental and Skeletal Development; Regression Formulae for Estimating Age at Death from CranialSuture Closure; Craniofacial Criteria in the Skeletal Attribution of Race; The Timing of Injuries and Manner of Death; Recognizing Gunshot and Blunt Cranial Trauma Through Fracture Interpretation; Postmortem Dismemberment; Saw Marks in the Bones; Statistical Interpretation in Forensic Anthropology; The Forensic Data Bank; Technical Aspects of Identification of Skeletal Markers of Occupational Stress; Facial Approximation; The Evolving Role of the Microscope in Forensic Anthropology; and The Third Exhumation of Jesse Woodson James.
