Overview

Gunshot Wounds provides critical information in the classification of gunshot wounds caused by handguns, rimfire and centerfire weapons, rifles and shotguns, as well as some less common weaponry. Written by one of the country's leading forensic pathologists, this important reference work covers issues concerning small arms fire and forensic pathology, such as basic forensic aspects of ballistics and wound ballistics, the importance of x-rays in autopsy, the detection of gunshot residues, the correct handling of deaths caused by firearms, and suicide by firearms.

"The authoritative 2nd edition includes new coverage of DNA and cytology, bang guns, rubber & plastic bullets, and more, as well as 78 new photographs...written by the nation's foremost expert on the subject."

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
With some 78 new horrific black-and-white photographs, and expanded discussions and references, a Texas county chief medical examiner updates the 1985 edition as guns continue to account for the majority of murders and suicides. Dr. Di Maio covers all the bloody bases: from types of firearms and ammunitions to the latest in forensic analyses (e.g. DNA typing of tissue on bullets). Appends myths and facts about "stopping power" and hollow-point pistol ammunition, and a section on the forensic autopsy. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
