9780124186712: Forensic Anthropology: Current Methods and Practice

Forensic anthropology has become a well-developed discipline which has seen a recent expansion in depth and scope as well as increased attention from the media and the legal system.   This constantly evolving science requires a comprehensive introductory text that approaches forensic anthropology as a modern discipline, with attention to theory as well as recent advances in research, technology, and challenges in the field. 
Forensic Anthropology:  Current Methods and Practices approaches forensic anthropology through an innovative style using current practices and real case studies drawn from the varied experiences, backgrounds, and practices of working forensic anthropologists.  This text guides the reader through all aspects of human remains recovery and forensic anthropological analysis, presenting principles at a level that is appropriate for those new to the field, while at the same time incorporating evolutionary, biomechanical, and other theoretical foundations for the features and phenomena encountered in forensic anthropological casework. 
Attention is focused primarily on the most recent and scientifically valid applications commonly employed by working forensic anthropologists.  Readers will therefore learn about innovative techniques in the discipline, and aspiring practitioners will be prepared by understanding the necessary background needed to work in the field today.  Instructors and students will find Forensic Anthropology:  Current Methods and Practice comprehensive, practical, and relevant to the modern discipline of forensic anthropology.

  • Focuses on modern methods, recent advances in research and technology, and current challenges in the science of forensic anthropology.
  • Addresses issues of international relevance such as the role of forensic anthropology in mass disaster response and human rights investigations.
  • Includes chapter summaries, topicoriented case studies, keywords, and reflective questions to increase active student learning.
