    Abstract

    The book stirs a mix of sensations on first encounter. Its size is daunting: thick, wide, voluminous—a tome. Its title attracts attention, provokes thought. The outlined body location cover illustration is grim, haunting. If you know the forensic sciences, read its principal works, you know this publication is a momentous event. James W. Osterburg, educator, past president of our AAFS, author of two forensic science texts, is senior coauthor. One of his texts, Introduction to Criminalistics, has been read and remembered by generations of criminalists since it was published in 1949. Coauthor Richard H. Ward's credentials include authorship on criminal investigation, notably terrorism, and police corruption.
