International Forensic Science and Investigation


About the Series

If forensic science is to stand next to biology, chemistry, physics, geology, and the other natural sciences, its practitioners must do more than simply follow procedural steps in manuals. They must be able to articulate the fundamental principles and theories of forensic science. The International Forensic Science series is designed to embrace current challenges through innovative books that broaden forensic knowledge while deepening our understanding of the application of that knowledge.
