Forensic Anthropology. The Growing Science Of Talking Bones

2003. Peggy Thomas. This book covers topics such as the biochemical process of decomposition, the newest techniques for identifying a person from even the minutest of remains, the use of computer technology (for such tasks as recording information, analyzing statistics, and approximating faces from a skull), DNA profiling, forensic dentistry, and forensic entomology. To illustrate new techniques, the author uses actual forensic cases, including the investigation of mass graves in Bosnia. Includes an extensive index, a glossary of terms, an appendix of forensics-oriented websites, and a bibliography of current sources for further research. 210 pages, hard cover, b&w photographs and illustrations.
