    Abstract

    The title of this book exactly describes its contents. Bennett has assembled a collection of 55 tables in 4 areas of skeletal identification, with the intention of providing “easy access to numerical information while in the field.” It is an unfortunate fact of forensic science life that our examinations often take place under suboptimal conditions: out of doors, in poorly equipped facilities, under time constraints, away from labs and reference materials. This manual should make examinations easier under these circumstances.
