Book Description

Criminalistics is the definitive source for forensic science because it makes the technology of the modern crime laboratory clear to the non-scientist.  Written by a well-known authority, the text covers the comprehensive realm of forensics and its role in criminal investigations. Physical evidence collection and preservation techniques are examined in detail–including chapters on Computer Forensics and DNA. By referencing real cases throughout, Criminalistics, 10e captures the pulse and intensity of forensic science investigations and the attention of the busiest student. Some new, excited features for this edition include:

  • New! Crime-Scene Reconstruction chapter
  • New! Coverage of the latest DNA forensic technology 

This book aims at making the subject of forensic science comprehensible to a wide variety of readers who are planning on being aligned with the forensic science profession.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Year Forensic Science Degree Text Book! January 9, 2012
By Star
Format:Hardcover
This was used as a text book for an Australian university and it was incredibly handy! Really helps understand the basic principles behind forensic science! There are multiple case studies that relate to each aspect the book talks about, e.g fingerprinting, physical evidence ETC... Very easy to read and enjoyable! A must have for beginners!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive August 9, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a refresher since it's been so long since I took a forensic course in school. It was comprehensive with topics covering trace evidence, DNA, firearms, fingerprints, etc. While not described in depth, this book provides introductions to these fields and is easily understandable (in my opinion) for someone with an interest in forensics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book very interesting. September 2, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Bought this book for a biology class I was taking. It is very interesting with lots of cases to review and make you think. Only con is that I didn't get the "mycrimekit" registration number that should have come with the book. If you are buying this book, you want to make sure you get that number as well so you can go online and access more information.
