Quick Overview
Recent Advances in Forensic Medicine and Toxicology (Volume 1) is designed to provide up-to-date knowledge on some common and special topics in the field, focusing closely on the dynamic and rapidly growing evolution of medical science and law. An attempt has been made to provide as much information as possible within the book, since the book is meant to be an overview of forensic issues concerned.

The book has been divided into three sections. In this, individual chapters present a problem-oriented approach to a central theme of medical jurisprudence, medical ethics, forensic pathology or toxicology. A comprehensive review of the national and international literature that is otherwise difficult to assimilate, is given in each chapter.
Key Features
This book has been written in clear and concise language suitable for a wide audience of readers. It is well illustrated with color photographs, diagrams, textboxes, tables and flow charts to emphasize salient features and clear communication of concepts. The book focuses on both practical and scientific aspects of the different areas of expertise within the broad field of forensic medicine and toxicology. The idea is to strengthen and enhance the role of forensic medicine in the court room that will subsequently help to solve crimes and bring justice.

Twenty-two chapters comprising of some common forensic topics likely to be encountered in the daily routine, as well as special topics which are not frequently encountered including both legal obligations and ethical responsibilities of those involved in the forensic setting are discussed. The chapters are written by experts who are leading authorities in their field of specialty and each chapter is extensively researched and references are cited at the end. The book is further divided into three sections:

• Section I focuses on medical jurisprudence covering legal and ethical issues and essential concepts in the interface between medicine and the law

• Section II deals with clinical forensic medicine that will help in serving as a practical guide to daily medicolegal work

• Section III covers forensic pathology and discusses the current issues and concepts on judicial hanging, dyadic deaths, fat embolism, tattoos, sudden infant death syndrome and post-autopsy reconstruction.
Target Audience
The book would fill the vacuum for a forensic book needed by those medical and legal professionals who work alongside or interact with forensic experts.
