Description

For courses in Intro to Forensic Science in CJ, Forensic Science, and Chemistry programs.

Criminalistics is the definitive source for forensic science because it makes the technology of the modern crime laboratory clear to the non-scientist.  Written by a well-known authority, the text covers the comprehensive realm of forensics and its role in criminal investigations. Physical evidence collection and preservation techniques are examined in detail–including chapters on Computer Forensics and DNA. This edition features a new chapter on crime-scene reconstruction, two lab manuals and an interactive website. By referencing real cases throughout, Criminalistics, 10e captures the pulse and intensity of forensic science investigations and the attention of the busiest student.
