A Review of Proceedings of The Taipei International Symposium on Forensic Sciences
The Proceedings represent a compilation of papers that were initially presented at The Taipei International Symposium on Forensic Sciences, held at Central Police University, March 24–26, 1991. Of the 26 papers, 22 are presented in English; the four remaining papers are in Chinese with an English abstract provided for each. As is usually the case with an edited volume, the contributions are quite varied—ranging from philosophical and legal considerations to the development and application of new analytical techniques. The diversity of the contributors, however, is one of the major strengths of the book. Drawing upon the expertise of researchers and practitioners from the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Israel, and Taiwan (Republic of China), the reader is presented with an excellent overview of contemporary developments in a variety of forensic science areas.
