"A timely reference … . .. The outstanding feature of this atlas is its astonishing collection of over 700 radiographs and photographs … . … A radiologic catalog of this magnitude could only be found in the possession of distinguished and accomplished practitioners, and the editors are acknowledged as being among the leaders in their respective fields. … CRC Press produces a handsome volume, and this is no exception. … The quality of these images is remarkable. … Includes new chapters on torture and terrorism that are a valuable resource for practicing anthropologists who rely heavily on radiographic imaging in their work … . " - American Journal of Physical Anthropology "This is a clearly written and illustrated book on Abuse, Torture, Terrorism and Inflicted Trauma by distinguished Radiologists and Odontologists…This is an authoritative book and should be of considerable value to all personal involved with Forensic Science…make it a useful reference. I have no hesitation in recommending this book to all those involved in Forensic Science." -Mary Baker, BAHID - British Association for Human Identification "This is a truly unique imaging atlas. The topic of mechanism of injury is not unique, but the manner of injuries covered in this atlas is and thus this book is without comparison." -Carol L. Andrews, M.D., in Doody's Electronic Journal

Book Description
Two distinguished radiologists and a renowned odontologist combine their lifetime collections of photographs dealing with radiologic diagnosis of violence. This atlas not only includes radiographs related to clinical forensic medicine, but also illustrates the radiologic techniques that detect arms, explosives, and other weapons. Providing over 700 large, black and white radiographs and 30 full color photos, the atlas allows for quick reference in cases of child abuse, police brutality, starvation, and other results of trauma. Radiologists in crime laboratories will have comparison photographs to recognize foreign material, such as letter bombs, as well as homicide by irradiation.
