First Sentence
The application of science to the legal arena is fundamentally one of reconstruction, that is, trying to assist in determining what happened, where it happened, when it happened, and who was involved. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
As a forensic scientist conducting DNA analysis for a crime laboratory, I'm constantly reviewing the latest literature on the subject. This text by Inman and Rudin is one that I've purchased and will keep on my desk for constant reference. My job requires that I not only conduct the laboratory analyses but also convey the results to a jury of lay individuals. This book bridges the gap between expert and novice and should be in the library of anyone with more than a casual interest in the subject.

As a criminal lawyer, I found this book to be an excellent reference which I use regularly to get an insight into DNA analysis. It is written in a detailed and yet straightforward manner, and so is easy for the non-scientist to comprehend.

HASH(0x9291b4e0) out of 5 stars A must-have for any DNA criminalist or criminal lawyer 6 July 2000
By Amy Mason - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have a BS in genetics and biochemistry and am looking to enter into a forensics lab. This book is an EXCELLENT resource for an entry-level criminalist, criminal lawyer, or the non-scientist interested in this topic. It was organized from basic genetics to higher-level interpretation issues and included tons of diagrams, pictures, and relevant case studies. This book did an outstanding job explaining complicated and detailed subject matter in an easy to understand and interesting matter.

HASH(0x9291b714) out of 5 stars Attorney's Guide 7 Feb. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a practicing lawyer who earns a living in the criminal courts, I found this book an excellent and informative guide to this often problematic area. The authors introduce the subject in a way that is easy for the beginner to comprehend, but at the same time include sufficient detail to answer many of the most pressing problems facing a defence team in court.

HASH(0x9291bd38) out of 5 stars A great intro for the beginner 10 Jun. 2002
By Bill Cope - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Having left behind my interest in genetics in order to pursue tax accountancy, I've always been fascinated by accounts of DNA typing. This book provides a wonderful introduction that is accessible to even the novice geneticist like myself. Much of the information Rudin and Inman give is quite practical; with some help from a friend who works in a medical lab I was able to set up my own electrophoresis gels and PCR. A word of caution to the amateur, however: make sure you practice before drawing any conclusions from the "evidence." My wife, Amy, wouldn't speak to me for a week after I claimed that a stain on our bed linen did not match my DNA. It turned out that she had spilled some ice cream.

HASH(0x9291bd68) out of 5 stars vivid introduction to forensic genotyping techniques 7 Feb. 2001
By jiri drabek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Nice figures, photos, schemes, and U.S. tables; lively comparisons show that authors are good teachers. Though technical part of the book outdates fast necessarily (acronym SNP has not been coined in 1996 yet), it is a shame that an interpretation part of the book neglects the current knowledge. Bayes theorem is known since 1763 and, nevertheless, likelihood ratio is not even mentined in the book! Books of Evett and Weir or of Robertson and Vignaux cannot be substituted by this book.
