9780398088781: The Human Skeleton in Forensic Medicine

This classic in forensic anthropology has been thoroughly updated and greatly expanded for the new Third Edition. The result presents the state of the medicolegal art of investigating human skeletal remains. The third edition follows more than 25 years after the second edition. During this time, considerable changes occurred in the field and Forensic Anthropology became a distinct specialty in its own right. Included in the book are detailed discussions on crime scene investigation, including excavation techniques, time interval since death, human or animal remains, mass graves, and preparation of remains. Existing chapters, all dramatically revised, bring readers in line with the current concepts of skeletal age; determination of sex; assessment of ancestry; calculation of stature; factors of individualization; superimposition and restoration of physiognomy. There is also a section on dental analysis examining such topics as dental anatomy, nomenclature, estimation of age in subadults and adults, determination of sex and ancestry, and pathological conditions. New additions are chapters on skeletal pathology and trauma assessment. A new chapter has also been added on "Forensic Anthropology of the Living." Although all of the sections of the book have been updated significantly, the authors have retained some sense of history to recognize the many pioneers that have shaped the discipline. The text will assist forensic anthropologists and forensic pathologists who have to analyze skeletons found in forensic contexts. This book has a global perspective in order to make it usable to practitioners across the world. Where possible, short case studies have been added to illustrate the diverse aspects of the work.

Review:

In review of this text a large array of sub-categories with the field of Forensic Anthropology. From simple techniques such as Basic search techniques to more complicated ones such as the analysis of Peri-mortem trauma and facial approximation.

The author s use of different styles to display the information is extremely helpful. Full page, half page and thumbnail black and white photographs, informative text blocks and relevant case studies are employed to ensure the reader can use different systems of learning. This makes the text very helpful for a large group of undergraduate scientists that have a research interest in forensic anthropology and forensic archaeology. Moreover, the text also investigates smaller sub-categories and useful tips for the most amateur of scientists or even law enforcement officers. For example, small sections such as what to do with a bag of bones and how to document an excavation.
More advanced areas are also explored in less detail in taphonomy chapter, such as commingled remains, including MLNI (Minimum Likely Number of Individuals) formula, and estimation of time since death. This section will be useful for individuals involved with mass disaster identification, whether practical and/or theoretical as formulas and application are explored.
The inclusion of minimum equipment lists and usage are another advantage for the aspiring forensic anthropology or forensic archaeology undergraduate. As many texts around the subject explain techniques very well but more often than not omit useful practical information such as this.

This text is not only useful for graduates looking to get into the field or who may have a general research interest, for a paper for instance, but also medical students undertaking osteology research or forensic dental modules. This is mainly due to the texts chapters regarding skeletal age, forensic anthropology of the living and dental analysis. Currently in the UK there are no specific training courses for the accreditation of forensic dentists, therefore chapters such as these can be utilised by these professionals as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students. Radiographic methods and histomorphometry are also explored in rough detail again lending this texts use to undergraduate study. With extra room to read around any specific subjects that encapsulates the reader s interest.

One of the main areas of forensic anthropologists practical duties includes the development of the biological profile from skeletal remains. This is covered in tremendous detail, during the main passage of the text, including different areas of study and methods employed for the different areas of; sex, age, ancestry and stature. Otherwise known as The Big Four . Thus this text can be used for practical and theoretical exploration of this area, mainly recommended for undergraduate level with some further reading postgraduate students would also find this section beneficial.

The text also explores DNA analysis within the forensic anthropology setting. Extraction and methods of analysis are explained in basic detail therefore could be used as a base of study in specific DNA analysis modules or provides a base for well-rounded knowledge for the forensic anthropologist.

In conclusion, the text is very informative and explores the main sub-categories involved in forensic anthropology and archaeology. As stated the text lends itself to undergraduate in particular forensic courses that heavily feature anthropology and human identification (DVI) modules or forensic anthropology courses themselves. Some postgraduate students may also find the text useful, with areas of study to be further read.

This text also covers bone pathology and trauma issues surrounding forensic anthropology as well as facial approximation . . . . --Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences/ Interfaces/ June 2015
