    This text, first published in 1947, and now in its ninth edition, is intended to serve as a “guide to the study and practice of forensic medicine.” The information presented, heavily slanted toward the British experience, is divided into two sections, Forensic Medicine and Toxicology. The former, representing two thirds of the book, includes topics of forensic pathology such as changes after death, firearm wounds, and asphyxia, but also topics such as medical ethics and medicolegal aspects of insanity. The second part of the book, Toxicology, describes the various poisons, divided into eight subgroups, and the laws regulating the sale of drugs and poisons in the United Kingdom.
