Review:

"I learned a lot reviewing this book and I have been in forensic toxicology for forty years. I even found references to research I had published in my early years. So I can state that the contributors have done a great job in their historical entries. At first glance you may suspect that it deals only with drug identification, but it goes beyond solid or liquid dosage form identification. It includes coverage of blood and urine analysis as well as hair and saliva. Each chapter is heavily referenced. Dr. Fred Smith edits the book with eleven well recognized experts in their fields. This book is not a textbook, but a very useful reference book and belongs in the libraries of colleges and universities that offer programs in criminal justice or forensic science. All crime labs should have this book in the library. - Forensic Science International "The editor and authors have done a fine job of providing up-to-date information on analytical techniques, instrumentation and methods for the drugs most commonly seen in forensic drug laboratories. This reviewer was glad to see that the book includes a chapter on illicit drug manufacture, an area far too often not included in this type of book. Overall, this is a well written, comprehensive, informative book written by authors who are extremely well qualified and knowledgeable in their respective fields. It would be a fine addition to the library of any laboratory involved in the analysis of drugs of abuse. - Ashraf Mozayani, Forensic Science, Medicine and Pathology
