A Review of Essentials of Forensic Anthropology: Especially as Developed in the United States
Since 1971 forensic anthropology, a branch of biological anthropology, has become an established discipline within the American Academy of Forensic Sciences. Since its establishment the field has developed in two directions: the identification of group biology of remains in question and the identification of personal biology, the second type of identification being relatively new. Comparison of the present volume with previous publications on forensic anthropology, for example, The Human Skeleton in Forensic Medicine (1962) by Wilton M. Krogman (Springfield: Charles C Thomas), clearly indicates these developments.
