Summary

This popular book, written by the foremost authority on forensic pathology, continues to fulfill its chief objective--to provide a clear, accessible introduction to forensic medicine. Now enhanced by over 100 high-quality color photographs chosen for their instructive potential, the Eleventh Edition of Forensic Medicine deals with the interface between medicine and the law in terms of medical examinations of both the living and the dead for civil and legal purposes. It discusses the increasingly relevant to medical practice ethical questions relating to the abuse of human rights and malpractice. International pertinence remains a priority, as the author concentrates on universally valid principles of forensic medicine that remain independent of national legal restrictions.
