How are forensic investigations conducted? What are the latest techniques in forensic methods? This book provides a comprehensive resource for the study of forensic science and its approaches to the investigation of death, disaster, and abuse. Editor Marc Oxenham has drawn together scientists and practitioners from the Asia–Pacific region with a range of specialties who provide a context to understand how their various approaches and processes in forensic investigation contribute to a successful outcome. The book has been structured into four sections comprising: forensic archaeology, techniques of human identification, determining time, manner and cause of death, legal, ethical and procedural issues. As a background to understanding the main issues, problems, solutions, debates, controversies and everyday practical approaches to the practice of forensic science, Forensic Approaches to Death, Disaster and Abuse is an invaluable aid to students, academics and practitioners.
