Description

 

Crime Scene Investigation offers an innovative approach to learning about crime scene investigation, taking the reader from the first response on the crime scene to documenting crime scene evidence and preparing evidence for courtroom presentation. It includes topics not normally covered in other texts, such as forensic anthropology and pathology, arson and explosives, and the electronic crime scene. Numerous photographs and illustrations complement text material, and chapter-by-chapter fictional narrative also provides the reader with a qualitative dimension of the crime scene experience.
The text is further enhanced by the contributions of such recognized forensic scholars as William Bass and Arthur Bohannon.
