Forensic Anthropology and Medicine: Complementary Sciences From Recovery to Cause of Death

£60.00

Product description

Forensic Anthropology and Medicine: Complementary Sciences From Recovery to Cause of Death presents both forensic anthropology and forensic pathology in their various and valuable contributions to contemporary society. Providing original, illustrated, and updating articles on the four parameters of the biological profile, this text encompasses the factors of individualisation; the decay process of a body and the relevance of each step for forensic sciences; bone trauma; access to a number of international organisations; the protocols related with the subject, all with perspectives of expertise from different countries, namely Europe, North America, and Latin America. Forensic Anthropology and Medicine: Complementary Sciences From Recovery to Cause of Death strengthens the contributions of forensic anthropologists in the main stages of forensic work (recovery, identification, and determination of cause of death). Organised in five parts, Part 1 presents both disciplines - forensic anthropology and forensic medicine, focused specially on forensic pathology. Part 2 contains techniques for age estimation of living individuals for reasons of imputability, one of the growing subfields of forensic anthropology. Part 3 discusses all the steps of forensic analysis, precisely from recovery to the cause of death. Part 4 reviews the state of knowledge on assessing gender, age, stature, and ancestry from skeletal remains, discussing and reviewing the question of personal identity. Part 5 presents a clear example of the real value of a multidisciplinary investigation, with mass disasters and crimes against humanity highlighted. Comprehensive and written by experts in the field, Forensic Anthropology and Medicine: Complementary Sciences From Recovery to Cause of Death offers forensic scientists, anthropologists, medical doctors, and police officers a bridge between forensic anthropology and forensic pathology that will grow and develop very closely in the future, whenever humanity has the need.
