Forensic detection methods have become increasingly important within the contemporary criminal justice system. Today, a large number of individuals and organisations make use of forensic techniques to solve a broad range of criminal justice problems. Whilst there are a plethora of text books on practically every type of forensic science used to solve crime and catch criminals, there is a distinct lack of sources aimed at the social science student studying criminology with forensics. This book aims to resolve this lack of literature by combining the area of forensic science with criminology. In doing so it provides a much needed sociological and criminological analysis of the context in which techniques forensic science is applied to identify and prosecute offenders. In attempting to bring together two interdisciplinary subjects (forensics and criminology) it is the first text of its kind in the UK. This book will be of particular interest to students and practitioners interested in criminology, criminal justice, forensic science, the legal process and public responses to crime and understanding criminality.
