9780123750716: Forensic Criminology

Forensic Criminology gives students of criminology and criminal justice an introduction to the forensic realm and the applied forensic issues they will face when working cases within the justice system. It effectively bridges the theoretical world of social criminology with the applied world of the criminal justice system.

While most of the competing textbooks on criminology adequately address the application and the social theory to the criminal justice system, the vast majority do not include casework or real-world issues that criminologists face. This book focuses on navigating casework in forensic contexts by case-working criminologists, rather than broad social theory. It also allows criminology/criminal justice instructors outside of the forensic sciences the ability to develop and instruct a core course that might otherwise be considered beyond their expertise, or in conflict with forensic courses taught in chemistry, biology, or medical programs at their institutions because of its focus on criminology and criminal justice careers.

With its practical approach, this textbook is well-suited for forensic criminology subjects being taught and developed in law, criminology, and criminal justice programs around the world.

  • Approaches the study of criminology from an applied standpoint, moving away from the purely theoretical
  • Contains relevant and contemporary case examples to demonstrate the application of forensic criminology
  • Provides an integrated philosophy with respect to criminology, forensic casework, criminal investigations, and the law
  • Useful for students and professionals in the area of criminology, criminal justice, criminal investigation, forensic science, and the law

From the Back Cover:

Forensic Criminology Shelving code: Criminology/Forensics/ Law/ Sociology BRENT E. TURVEY, MS, WAYNE A. PETHERICK, PHD, and CLAIRE E. FERGUSON, MCRIM With contributions from: Craig Cooley, Ms, JD Stan Crowder, PhD David Field, LLB Terry Goldsworthy, PhD Ben Ihle, LLB Carole McCartney, PhD Michael McGrath, MD Ronald Miller, MS Angela Torres, PhD Forensic Criminology: the scientific study of crime and criminals for the purposes of addressing investigative and legal issues. It is a science, a behavioral science, and a forensic science. This text is intended to educate students in an applied fashion regarding the nature and extent of forensic casework that is supported by, dependent upon, and interactive with research, theory, and knowledge derived from criminology. It is also intended to act as a preliminary guide for practitioners working with and within related criminal justice professions. Particularly those involved with assisting investigations, administrative inquiries, legal proceedings or providing expert findings or testimony under oath. It is offered as an applied scientific sub-discipline within the domain of general criminology, as well as a roadmap to the forensic realm for the uninitiated. Written by the authors of the best-selling Criminal Profiling, now in its third edition, and the groundbreaking Forensic Victimology, Forensic Criminology provides a bridge between the broad constructs of theoretical criminology and the forensic examination of individual cases. It serves as a textbook for college and university coursework, as a manual for practitioners, and as career guide for students. Key Features:

  • Approaches the study of criminology from an applied standpoint, moving away from the purely theoretical.
  • Contains relevant and contemporary case examples to demonstrate the application of forensic criminology.
  • Provides an integrated philosophy with respect to criminology, forensic casework, criminal investigations, and the law.
  • Useful for students and professionals in the area of criminology, criminal justice, criminal investigation, forensic science, and the law.
