Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews:

"The goal is to provide the medico-legal community a resource for the comparison and discrimination of animal and human bone. As the first book of its kind, Comparative Skeletal Anatomy is a well-organized and useful contribution to the forensic literature. … a systematic and logical means of visually comparing the morphology and size of human bones to common animal counterparts. … is both a useful resource for archaeologists and medico-legal specialists, as well as a valuable training text for students of human anatomy and osteology." (Tracy L. Rogers, Canadian Society of Forensic Science Journal, August, 2008)

From the Back Cover

Forensic scientists working with human skeletal remains must be able to differentiate between human and non-human bones. Comparative Skeletal Anatomy: A Photographic Atlas for Medical Examiners, Coroners, Forensic Anthropologists, and Archaeologists fills a void in the literature by providing a comprehensive photographic guide of both human and non-human bones that is useful to those working in the fields of archaeology or the forensic sciences. This volume is a photographic atlas of common animal bones and is the first to focus comparatively on both human and animal osteology. Throughout this groundbreaking text, animal bones are photographed alongside the corresponding human bone, allowing the reader to observe size and shape variations. The goal of this guide is to help experienced archaeologists and forensic scientists distinguish human remains from common animal species, including horses, cows, goats, rabbits, chickens, ducks, sheep, and pigs, among others. Comprehensive and timely, Comparative Skeletal Anatomy: A Photographic Atlas for Medical Examiners, Coroners, Forensic Anthropologists, and Archaeologists is sure to become an essential reference for all forensic scientists and archeologists working with human skeletal remains.

By Derek Paauw on March 25, 2008
Format: Hardcover
As an archaeologist I was excited to hear that finally someone was putting together a comprehensive comparative atlas on human and animal skeletal anatomy; however, when I finally received my copy I was completely and utterly disappointed. The authors have taken a good idea and failed on so many different levels. The biggest issue that I had, given the nature of its intent as a photographic atlas, is the photographs are of extremely poor quality. They are highly pixilated and they leave you squinting to ascertain any detail. Furthermore, the authors' use of a what appears to be a homemade scale and coin for scale is an extremely poor choice, leaving me wonder if this compilation was not some last minute weekend project. The authors fail to offer any real helpful explanations or details, further compounding its uselessness. Finally, the astonishing price that is being charged adds insult to injury. In conclusion, I would avoid purchasing this title. I am sending my copy back.
