Overview

âThe Pathology of Traumaã is now firmly established as the definitive guide to the characteristics, causes and effects of accidental, occupational and violent trauma. The new edition approaches the forensic aspects of trauma from the conditions in which they arise looking at the circumstances in which injuries occur, the types of injury sustained and their avoidance and prevention.

Subjects range from stabbing to the specialist areas of injuries associated with the off-shore oil and construction industries, as well as sports and recreational injuries which are all covered in depth by experts within their fields. The new edition also recognises the changing concerns with regard to trauma such as child abuse and drug-related violence.

The editors have maintained a tight rein to ensure a seamless writing style and consistency of artwork throughout.

'The Pathology of Trauma' is the comprehensive reference text for forensic pathologists, trauma surgeons and A&E surgeons. There is also a market amongst departments of occupational medicine due to the strong emphasis on epidemiology, causes and prevention of work related trauma.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John Mark Oscherwitz, M.D.(University of Kansas School of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive forensic pathology textbook. The editors have thoroughly covered the various aspects of trauma with excellent photography and descriptive text.
Purpose: In this third edition, the editors' objective is to stress the importance of studying the pathology of trauma in situations in which it occurs. Both toxicology and the psychological aspects of violence and trauma have been expanded in this edition. This book will certainly enrich the forensic literature.
Audience: Although the editors have written the book primarily for forensic pathologists and pathology residents, it will also be useful for other healthcare professionals as well as detectives. The editors are leaders in the field and have done an excellent job once again with this edition.
Features: In this new version of the book, the entire gamut of traumatic pathology has been extensively covered, ranging from aviation and major disasters to sexual trauma and the psychological autopsy. The chapters on the psychological aspects of violence are particularly helpful in distinguishing suicides from accidents. Overall, the book is very well illustrated with educational photographs. Practical tables are used frequently throughout the text, and in the chapters on hemostasis and chemical pathology useful flow diagrams are included as well. In general, the chapters are quite well referenced with current literature as well as important older literature. In the preface the editors have been somewhat vague with regards to their objectives. Overall, however, there are few weaknesses in the book.
Assessment: This edition is a well written, exceedingly thorough addition to the pathology literature. As a forensic reference text, few other books are as complete. With expanded coverage of recent topics, this edition will be enlightening to pathologists for the next decade.
Robert H. Kirschner
This is the second edition (first edition 1978) of a forensic pathology book written for the nonspecialist. It is aimed at the hospital pathologist and clinician involved with trauma. There is a need for such a book because the standard forensic texts are too detailed for most readers. There are some significant gaps that limit the usefulness of this book. The book, edited by a respected forensic pathologist, is written for hospital pathologists and clinicians involved in trauma. Many chapters will be of interest to the forensic pathologist, especially those discussing occupational- and sports-related deaths. The photographs, all in black-and-white, are of high quality. Some are redundant or oddly placed. Most chapter bibliographies are appropriate to the text. The chapter on chemical pathology of trauma lacks a bibliography and provides only suggestions for further reading. This is unacceptable when there is extensive contemporary laboratory and clinical research on the subject. The unique feature of this book is the organization of many chapters according to socioclinical entities, such as those on domestic violence and the offshore industry and its hazards. The table of contents and index are satisfactory. The overall appearance of the book is attractive, with high-quality paper, easy-to-read print, section headings in bold print, and generous margins. This book is highly idiosyncratic. Many chapters deal with topics not found in standard forensic pathology texts; as such, the book will have some appeal to forensic pathologists. On the whole, however, there is a lack of balance in the selection of topics, and the organization of chapters leads to both redundancies and omissions. Thebook falls short of its objective of serving as a text for the nonspecialist.
