Overview

Introduction to Forensic Sciences, Second Edition is the current edition of this bestselling introductory textbook. Dr. William Eckert, one of the world's foremost authorities in the area of forensic medicine,
presents each of the distinct fields that collectively comprise the forensic sciences in a logical, relatively non-technical fashion.

Each chapter is written by a well-known expert in his/her respective field, and each specialty area is thoroughly treated. When appropriate, the various methods of applying these sciences in different countries are covered. Heavily illustrated, the Second Edition has been updated to include current procedures and techniques that were not available or usefully developed when the first edition was published.

Features include:

The role of the forensic lab, forensic psychiatry, scientific evidence in court, legal medicine, DNA typing.
