Fundamentals of Forensic Science

Fundamentals of Forensic Science from Academic Press presents a complete look at the forensic sciences, emphasizing the biology, chemistry and physical sciences that underpin forensic science. By covering the principles that are central to the forensic science, and by discussing topics typically excluded from generalized discussions of criminalistics, this book provides a depth of information. Organized along the timeline of a real case, it begins with an introduction and history of forensic science, covers the basic methods of analysis used in most forensic examinations, addresses the elements relevant to the field and concludes with an examination of how science interacts with the law. Written by Max Houck and Jay Siegel, two leading experts in forensic science today, this book is available at books.elsevier.com.
