This sequel to the best-selling Chemistry and Crime presents the development of major forensic methods and their basis in academic science. It covers forensic disciplines and techniques such as detection of arsenic, forensic toxicology, dust analysis, examination of arson evidence, and DNA typing. It also illustrates the use of forensic science testimony for courtroom cases and provides a history of DNA applications by one of the leading practitioners, David H. Bing. A review of the field by the late Ralph Turner provides an historical perspective of forensic science. The book also includes an entertaining discussion of forensic science in detective fiction by S.M. Gerber.

"The recent publicity generated by trials such as those of O.J. Simpson and Louise Woodward has brought to the attention of the general public the use of forensic chemistry in both prosecution and defense. This very readable book presents the development of major forensics methods and their basis in academic science. It is easy to read and follow. One does not need to have a great knowledge of chemistry to follow this fascinating area." --Microchemical Journal "The recent publicity generated by trials such as those of O.J.
