Description : In Forensic Pathology, Bernard Knight discusses the procedures involved in the examination of a body found dead under obscure, suspicious, or criminal circumstances. A broad coverage of the field of forensic pathology is provided. Topics examined include the forensic autopsy, the pathophysiology of death, and identification of the body to the specific manner of death, be it by injury, suffocation, poisoning, gunshot, fire, drugs, etc. Throughout, the author offers practical advice and a philosophical approach that is designed to help the doctor analyze and question the interpretations drawn from physical findings. A helpful appendix detailing laboratory techniques and staining methods is also included. Forensic Pathology is a major reference work which should appeal to forensic pathologists, forensic scientists, scientists in crime laboratories, and lawyers.
