    Soil and mineral evidence is encountered with moderate frequency in civil and criminal investigations. In recognition of this fact, the text in question attempts to depict the state of the art in the forensic characterization of geological materials. A tripartite audience is intended by the authors: (1) criminalists, (2) attorneys, both prosecuting and defense, and (3) geologists and soil scientists who may wish to become involved with the forensic area. Since each of these three groups will approach this book with different backgrounds and expectations, it is to be expected that each group will respond to the text in a somewhat different manner.
