Product description


…James and Nordby have enlisted the hemisphere's leading experts in his or her individual field of expertise to explain and educate the reader to the topic at hand … I found the book to be concise, very informative, and easy to understand … For the college/university student, this book has the potential to be ranked as the 'must have' textbook … As a former crime scene investigator and current adjunct instructor, I believe this book to be a noteworthy addition to any private or agency library. Accordingly, it could easily fulfill the curriculum mandate for a general forensic science class at either the freshman or second-year post-secondary school level … the third edition of Forensic Science: An Introduction to Scientific and Investigative Techniques is not only a premiere reference textbook, but with its palatable price tag, this reference manual makes for a worthwhile academic investment either in or out of the classroom.
―Craig C. Moore, Constable, Niagara Regional Police Service, Ontario, Canada, Canadian Society of Forensic Science Journal, Vol. 43 No. 1, March 2010


A comprehensive overview of forensic science in its broadest sense, this standard-setting bestseller reaches beyond the scope of other texts that concentrate on criminalistics. It features an extensive range of fundamental topics with the technical detail necessary to understand the breadth of the forensic sciences. Changes in this edition include a new foreword by James Starrs, a new chapter on forensic photography, completely rewritten chapters on computer forensics and DNA analysis, expanded information on crime scenes and forensic pathology, and a wealth of new ancilliary material for instructors including testbank questions and additional photographs for lectures provided on CD. A companion lab book is available.
