Synopsis

Forensic Science From Fibers to Fingerprints by Lisa Yount

The lives of real forensic scientists - scientists who apply their skills to crimes or other legal matters - are not as glamorous as those of television heroes, nor are their results as sure. They may need weeks or months to identify criminals or victims instead of hours, or they may never do so at all. 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.
