Chief, Sheriff's Criminalistics Laboratory, Los Angeles,
The second edition of Richard Saferstein's book Criminalistics: An Introduction to Forensic Sciences, like the earlier edition, offers the beginning student of forensic science as well as the nonscientist criminal justice practitioner an excellent overview of criminalistics and the capabilities of today's crime laboratory. The practicing criminalist will likely find the text too elementary for his own use but could well recommend it to prosecutors and defense attorneys to help them understand different laboratory analytical techniques.
