Forensic pharmacology - First Edition

£14.99

Product description

Forensic Pharmacology offers a unique and comprehensible account of pharmacological methods and knowledge, and how to use them to solve problems in crimes from drunken driving to murder. It also deals with negligence in giving drugs, and adverse reactions to drugs. The text is enlivened by cases from the literature and from the authors' experience. Appendices give detailed examples of pharmacological problems and their solutions; tables and equations for alcohol calculations; and data for medicines encountered in forensic work. Experts do not always understand what lawyers want of them, and lawyers fail to appreciate that experts in medicine and pharmacology may not be experts in the law. The section entitled 'legal considerations' was written by a barrister with wide experience of using expert evidence and explains clearly the legal principles. It also contains some helpful hints on how to deal with court procedure and adversarial lawyers.

Forensic Pharmacology by R. E. Ferner is a hardback book with no dust jacket, published by Oxford University Press in 1996. It is in very good condition. It has FEPs that are clean and unmarked. It is shelf worn and cocked with good tight blinding and crisp, clean pages. It is 6.75" x 9.75" and has 249 pages.
