This volume should grace the shelves of all forensic anthropology and bioarchaeology laboratories. It serves well its dual goals: 1) to provide an overview of the principles for interpreting blunt force trauma; and 2) to illustrate through case studies the significance of the individual in assessing skeletal trauma. While overall there are 16 collaborators, they are visible only as coauthors of the initial chapter and in the case studies which make up approximately 20% of the text. Galloway thus plays a major role both as editor and author (Chapter 1–7 and Case Study C).
