This book is a wonderful reference for medical students going into pathology or students of forensic science. It give detailed descriptions of causes/manners/and mechanisms of death.

If you have come so far as to read this message, and you don't actually have this book, you're in a situation which you may want to correct right now. It's not A book in medicolegal investigation. It's THE book in this field. I have seen it quoted time and again in courtrooms (well, courtroom scripts) to grill the pathologist witness.
800+ pages, 800+ photos and illustrations. 8.5 x 11
(Sounds like an ad. It isn't. Just buy it.)

I read this book a couple of years ago for a short course at the University of New Orleans, and loved it. I keep it on my shelf for reference now, but will likely use it again soon when I go off to graduate school. The sections are very well-written, and can be understood by most anyone who has had at least some experience in this field. The case studies were paricularly relavant, and it would be nice to see more of that in further editions. Also, there are excellent descriptions and illustrations of gunshot and other homocide-related deaths - however, not as much information on accidental death or taphonomy as I would have liked.

This treatise should be in the legal library, and trial box, of every criminal defense attorney who tries murder cases. Buy it. Read it. Use it.

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Brittawni Lee Olson (britolson@aol.com) on March 19, 1998
I am a student in a Forensic Science Program, and this was a required text. I was greatly impressed with the depth and detail of the descriptions and explanations given throughout this text. The outline of the text was organized in a fluid fashion and the text was written in a manner that was very readable even for a student. Highly recomended to anyone interested in the area of criminal investigation and law enforcement.

This text is a requirement in some forensic fellowships. While in some subjects, the text is out-of-date, in other subjects, the facts never change and provide for a overall great reference text. I would recommend this book to anyone who is considering forensics as a career.
