Advances in our ability to analyse information from skeletal remains and subsequent developments in the field of forensic anthropology make it possible to identify more victims of homicides, mass-fatality disasters, and genocide. Summarizing the vast collection of international literature that has developed over the past decade, Forensic Anthropology: 2000 to 2010 explores critical themes fundamental to this evolving topic. A superior supplemental text for any physical anthropology or archaeology class, this volume provides an ideal starting point for advanced exploration and more detailed analysis of select areas. Each chapter presents an overview of the theme under discussion, identifies present trends in research, and suggests areas in which future research could be developed.

Topics discussed include:

  • Age determination in juveniles and adults
  • Sex, race, and ancestry determination
  • Stature determination
  • Dental and facial identification
  • Skeletal trauma and bone pathology
  • Taphonomy and comparative osteology
  • Identification from soft tissues

Heavily referenced, each chapter contains extensive bibliographies that facilitate further study. The scope of the book’s coverage and the careful presentation of meticulous research make it an essential resource for those seeking deeper exploration of this growing field.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Forensic Anthropology: 2000 to 2010 is an edited text produced by members of the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification at the University of Dundee. All major aspects of the subject are covered in the 12 chapters, each of which provide a brief summary and then, most valuably, continued with a list of references published during the last ten years on each topic. Each chapter was initially written by honours students in forensic anthropology and then revised and edited with the cooperation of a specialist member of staff. Thus this is an extremely useful edited reference text, written largely by students, for students, who need up-to-date information for their studies in Forensic Anthropology.—Louise Scheuer, Forensic Anthropologist and Honorary Chair, University of Dundee, and co-author of Developmental Juvenile Osteology" … a carefully conceived, clearly organized, and well-executed volume. … the scope and diversity of references make Forensic Anthropology 2000 to 2010 a valuable resource for everyone in this field. … Whether your goal is to conduct research, look up a technique to use in a forensic case, or brush up on the latest developments in a particular area of forensic anthropology, this edited volume provides a quick and easy means of finding current and relevant information about lab-based forensic anthropology."— Tracy L. Rogers, Ph.D., Department of Anthropology and Forensic Science Program, University of Toronto Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, in Canadian Society of Forensic Science Journal"This book will make a welcome addition to the forensic anthropology literature. It contains short and concise chapters with extensive referencing. … will no doubt be of use to both the student and the professional."—Bernadette Manifold, Forensic Science, Medicine, and Pathology
