Now in its second edition, Forensic Investigation of Explosions draws on the editor’s 30 years of explosives casework experience, including his work on task forces set up to investigate major explosives incidents. Dr. Alexander Beveridge provides a broad, multidisciplinary approach, assembling the contributions of internationally recognized experts who present the definitive reference work on the subject.

Topics discussed include:

  • The physics and chemistry of explosives and explosions
  • The detection of hidden explosives
  • The effect of explosions on structures and persons
  • Aircraft sabotage investigations
  • Explosion scene investigations
  • Casework management
  • The role of forensic scientists
  • Analysis of explosives and their residues
  • Forensic pathology as it relates to explosives
  • Presentation of expert testimony

With nearly 40 percent more material, this new edition contains revised chapters and several new topics, including:

  • A profile of casework management in the UK Forensic Explosives Laboratory, one of the world’s top labs, with a discussion of their management system, training procedures, and practical approaches to problem solving
  • Properties and analysis of improvised explosives
  • An examination of the Bali bombings and the use of mobile analytical techniques and mobile laboratories
  • The collection, analysis, and presentation of evidence in vehicle-borne improvised explosive device cases, as evidenced in attacks on US overseas targets

This volume offers valuable information to all members of prevention and post-blast teams. Each chapter was written by an expert or experts in a specific field and provides well-referenced information underlying best practices that can be used in the field, laboratory, conference room, classroom, or courtroom.

About the Author:

Dr. Alexander (Sandy) Beveridge is a consultant forensic chemist and lawyer in Vancouver, Canada. He is a fellow of the Chemical Institute of Canada and had a 30-year career in the Forensic Science Service of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, where he headed the chemistry section in the Vancouver laboratory for many years. Sandy conducts courses and workshops on forensic investigation of explosions from practical, scientific, and legal perspectives for investigators and at academic institutions.

Review:

"If there is a book for explosives investigations that I can recommend to anyone training in the field of explosives, then it is without a doubt Forensic Investigation of Explosions. The book not only accompanies the beginner through the history of explosives and explosives investigations, but serves as a great tool for seasoned investigators, scientists, and bomb technicians as the world of explosives investigations evolves."
Melanie Brochu, B.Sc. RCMP Forensic Specialist (Explosives), Ottawa, Ontario
