The lives of real forensic scientists—scientists who apply their skills to crimes or other legal matters—is just as intriguing as that of their television counterparts. Forensic Science profiles key figures in this newsmaking field, both pioneers and today's top forensics experts. Eye-catching, in-text sidebars explore specific aspects of each scientist's work. Each chapter includes a chronology and suggestions for further reading; the book's general bibliography provides students with information on forensics-related organizations and Web resources.


Black-and-white photographs and line illustrations. Appendixes. Sidebars. Glossary. General chronology. Chapter-specific chronologies and further readings. Web sites. Further resources. Index.
