9780205435388: Introduction to Forensic Anthropology: A Textbook (2nd Edition)

Comprehensive and engaging, Stephen Byers leaves readers rejoicing in the thoughtful pedagogy that leads them step by step through the most current and detailed explanation of forensic anthropology to date! This one-of-a-kind source offers comprehensive coverage of all the major topics in the field of forensics with accuracy, intensity, and clarity. Following the protocol developed for the field by Clyde Snow in his 1982 article in the Annual Review of Anthropology, this cutting-edge text includes coverage of all areas in the field. Extensive illustrations and photos ensure that the book is accessible to all levels of readers. New material through out this Second Edition takes the reader to the next level of anaylsis, expanding their understanding of what samples can reveal about their source. As one reviewer says, "There is no other source available that is so comprehensive in its coverage of the methods and issues in the current practice of forensic anthropology." Another raves, "The first edition has been a big hit with my students, and I have been very pleased with the ease with which this text has corresponded to my class lecture structure . . . I am anxiously awaiting the second edition!"
