Summary

Fairgrieve (anthropology and biology, Laurentian U., Canada) designed this book for students of forensic anthropology who already have a background in human anatomy. The case studies collected here provide a detailed treatment of the circumstances involved in each case and offer insights into the thinking behind the application of analytical techniques. The cases include discussions of the limits of forensic osteology by examining both successes and failures. Topics include discerning human remains from those of other animals, sex determination, identification of a missing person, and human rights issues. Annotation c.
