    Abstract

    Reviewing the papers presented in this volume from the keyword in the book title, “Advances,” the contributions range from excellent to a repetition of data published elsewhere. This compilation of articles contains some papers with new material, or variations and ramifications of previously described methods of identification. Alternately, there are a few articles that are only reviews of the literature or overviews of well-known techniques. In the Introduction, Reichs divides the 16 chapters into 3 stages with some subdivision: Stage I: Field Recovery; Stage II: Laboratory Analysis, Osteological Aspects—Age, Sex, Race; Stage III: Laboratory Analysis, Forensic Aspects—Time and Manner of Death, Individuation. Then she considers the contributions made through the data analyses or presentation by the authors, with a brief review of the relevant literature.
