    Abstract

    The first edition of this book was published in 1977, which means it has been in continuous production for about 24 years. There has to be a reason for such success and I believe that reason is that it fulfills a need for a simple readable text for college and training courses in forensic science. A part of this success is also due to ability to bridge the gap between the science oriented “doer” and the law enforcement “user” of forensic science. This is no small problem and it imposes limitations on the book for both applications. This is the strength of the book in its market place and the weakness of the book for those who wish to use it in one of those two arenas.
