This A to Z encyclopedia provides a definitive and comprehensive reference on the main areas of specialist and expert knowledge and skills used by those involved in all aspects of the forensic process. It covers all topics which, either as part of an established forensic discipline or as a potentially useful emerging discipline, are of interest to those involved in the forensic process. This work represents the interdisciplinary nature of forensic sciences. This includes both the scientific methodology and the admissibility of evidence. The encyclopedia also provides case studies of landmark cases in the definition and practice of forensic science including Frye v. United States and Kumho Tire v. Carmichael. Wiley Encyclopedia of Forensic Science presents all material on a level and in a style that makes it accessible to a wide range of readers.
