It is divided into three sections, and the first section, “Principles for Forensic Toxicology,” includes information on the pharmacological and analytical principles necessary for the forensic toxicologist to fulfill his professional obligations. Chapters on the history of forensic toxicology and the pathology of poisoning are also included. The second section deals with the practice of forensic toxicology and describes the type of work involved in a routine forensic toxicology laboratory. The final section, “Applications of Forensic Toxicology,” includes chapters on data reporting and handling, interpretation of toxicological data, and appearing as an expert witness.
