Review of: Forensic Pathology Reviews: Volume 1
Forensic Pathology Reviews is a new (April 2004) and ambitious series published by Humana Press and edited by Michael Tsokos, MD of the Institute of Legal Medicine at the University of Hamburg. It is a part of an explosive growth in forensic publications that is difficult not to link to the recent interest from the spate of television shows or forensics. However, the introduction to the series correctly refers to a significant expansion of scientific progress in the forensic sciences and states: “The Forensics Pathology Reviews knowledge on special topics in the field, focusing closely on the dynamic and rapidly growing evolution of medical science and law.” The introduction further states that the series is intended to take a problem-oriented approach and provide comprehensive and well documented reviews of the international literature with insights into new diagnostic techniques.
