Over the last 10 years interest in the disciplines of forensic anthropology and archaeology has exploded. In order to provide archaeologists and their students with a reliable understanding of these disciplines, this authoritative volume draws contributions from fifty experienced practitioners from around the world to offer a solid foundation in both the practical and ethical components of forensic work. Over 40 chapters weave together historical development, current field methods in analyzing crime, natural disasters and human atrocities, an array of laboratory techniques, key case studies, legal, professional, and ethical issues, and promising future directions, all from a global perspective. This volume will be the benchmark for the understanding of anthropological and archaeological forensics for years to come.

Summing Up: Highly recommended."... --J. A. Gibson, CHOICE ... this volume is indeed comprehensive. The Editors should be congratulated on an excellent book, which should be on the bookshelf of any serious practitioner and library. The Editors state that the methodologies summarised in this volume are state of the art but hardly the last word.' However, this book should remain highly relevant for many years to come. Highly recommended!!"... - James Robertson, Australian Journal of Forensic Sciences
