Sinopsis: This is a comprehensive reference source on the theory, techniques, and application of the various forensic sciences. It examines the subject with a factual approach, while also addressing the kinds of topics that figure prominently in the media.

From Booklist: The CSI television series phenomenon has had an extraordinary influence on students’ interest in studying for careers in forensic science. In response, Salem has produced an encyclopedia that approaches the subject not only from the scientific aspect but from the media side as well. Some 460 articles are arranged in A–Z order. Each volume contains a “Category Index” that covers all three volumes, and a comprehensive subject index is found in the last volume. The third volume also contains several appendixes, including “Guide to Internet Resources,” a list and description of TV shows that use forensic science extensively, brief biographies of key figures in the field, a time line, a bibliography, and a glossary. The articles themselves vary in length from 500 to 3,000 words and contain lists for further reading and see also references. Each begins with a brief definition of the subject and a statement of the topic’s significance. Topics range from the highly scientific, such as discussions of the deaths of Beethoven and Napoléon, to evidence-gathering techniques, such as Fingerprints and Forensic photography. Popular TV shows, such as Cold Case and CSI, have their own entries. There is extensive use of photographs, diagrams, and sidebars. This is a very engaging reference set. Users interested in the subject will be likely to read from one entry to another because of the writing style. It is recommended for public libraries, although libraries looking for a more popular (and less expensive) approach may find that Facts On File’s Encyclopedia of Forensic Science (2008) serves just as well. Academic libraries should consider their curriculum needs. --Danise Hoover

Descripción Salem Press Inc, United States, 2008. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a comprehensive reference source on the theory, techniques, and application of the various forensic sciences.The past decade has seen an explosion of interest in the application of scientific techniques to investigations of crime. Television audiences have developed a seemingly insatiable appetite for shows such as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Cold Case that go into the minutiae of how forensic techniques are used to solve crimes. Forensic Science examines this subject with a factual approach, while also addressing the kinds of topics that figure prominently in the media and offering up-to-date material in a rapidly changing field.Scope and coverage: Forensic Science approaches its subject from multiple directions. One of the primary approaches is from the points of view of forensic investigators. In addition to its core essays on subspecialties and allied fields, the set has essays on specific types of investigations, such as arson, homicide, and computer crime; both general and specific investigative techniques, such as autopsies, ballistics, chromatography, crime scene photography, fingerprint analysis, and polygraph analysis; specialized equipment, such as bomb and nuclear detection devices; and types of evidence, such as fire debris, fibers and filaments, glass, and blood residue and stains.A second broad approach taken by Forensic Science is its coverage of the role of forensic science in the American legal system. The set includes brief articles on some of the most important federal legislation applying to controlled substances, such as the Harrison Narcotic Act of 1914, and the Anabolic Steroid Act of 1990.A third broad approach taken by Forensic Science - and one that should have a wide appeal to many readers - is its extensive coverage of specific historical subjects. These range from overviews of ancient criminal cases and mysteries and ancient science in law and courtrooms to examinations of such high-profile modern cases as the O.J. Simpson murder trial, the Unabomber case, and famous Hollywood forensic cases. The set also includes essays on such subjects as the Lindberg baby kidnapping case and the exhumations of Presidents Zachary Taylor and Abraham Lincoln.Organization and format: The articles in Forensic Science contain helpful top matter that defines the topics and summarizes their relevance to forensic science and the Further Reading notes. The alphabetical arrangement makes topics easy to find. Additional finding aids include category and subject indexes and cross-references to related topics at the end of each essay. The appendixes include a biographical directory of key figures in the history of the field, a glossary, a directory of television shows in which forensic sciences figure prominently, and a time line of major events.
