    Abstract

    This is second edition of a text originally published in 1975. In the preface the authors state “A scientific evaluation of this discipline must discard the medico-legal mythology that still pervades much forensic thinking, writing and practice.” With this concept in mind, portions of the text leave the impression that status thymicolymphaticus can be a legitimate cause of death, fat emboli may not be clinically significant, and instantaneous cadaveric rigidity can occur in some natural deaths.
