9780133458817: Criminalistics: An Introduction to Forensic Science Plus Mycjlab with Pearson Etext -- Access Code Package

This best-selling text, written for the non-scientist, is appropriate for a wide variety of students, including criminal justice, law enforcement, law, and more!

Criminalistics: An Introduction to Forensic Science, 11e, strives to make the technology of the modern crime laboratory clear and comprehensible to the non-scientist. The nature of physical evidence is defined, and the limitations that technology and current knowledge impose on its individualization and characterization are examined. By combining case stories with applicable technology, Criminalistics endeavors to capture the pulse and fervor of forensic science investigations. A major portion of the text centers on discussions of the common items of physical evidence encountered at crime scenes. These chapters include descriptions of forensic analysis, as well as updated techniques for the proper collection and preservation of evidence at crime scenes. Particular attention is paid to the meaning and role of probability in interpreting the evidential significance of scientifically evaluated evidence.

From the Back Cover:

This is the ‘one-stop’ guide you need to help you through all practical aspects of your forensic science course.

Becoming a forensic scientist depends on developing a wide range of practical skills, ranging from those required to observe, measure and record accurately, to those associated with operating up-to-date analytical equipment. You will also need broader skills, for example, in relation to teamwork and study. Practical Skills in Forensic Science provides an easy-to-read guide to help you develop the skills you need to succeed.

This text provides comprehensive coverage of the necessary skills, including aspects of chemistry, biology and physics, as well as relevant aspects of law.

Key features:

  • Presents information in a concise and user-friendly manner, helping you to master and practice key techniques.
  • Designed as a practical aid to learning, with margin tips and hints, definitions, and worked examples. These help guide you through the content and are engaging to read.
  • Uses ‘How to’ boxes which set out the essentials in a step-by-step manner, helping you to understand techniques in context.
  • Provides practical advice on specific techniques, including taking fingerprints and DNA analysis, as well as broader skills, such as tackling numerical problems and passing exams.
  • Uses illustrations and tables to help you navigate the information.
  • Provides key sources of further study for every topic, including printed and online material, guiding you on where to go for your research.
  • Includes case examples, guidelines for reporting results and advice on the legal aspects of forensic science, providing you with a grounding in the realities of becoming a forensic scientist.

Who is this book for?

Practical Skills in Forensic Science is an indispensable book for undergraduate students taking forensic science degree programmes and for those following related courses such as forensic chemistry.  It will also be highly useful to students taking modules in forensic analysis or crime scene investigation as part of a broader programme, or a joint degree course. It represents a valuable resource for postgraduate students working in this area, and lecturers should find it an effective way to supplement information given in practical sessions.
