Raising the Dead by Roxana Ferllini
This book demonstrates how specialized scientific methods are used to identify human remains and piece together facts behind the most horrendous crimes, fires, accidents, airline crashes, natural disasters and human rights violations of our time. It details the intricate jobs of forensic anthropologists, in conjunction with other disciplines such as odontology, archaeology, entomology and ballistics to establish facts that are not obvious to the normal eye, so that criminals can be brought to justice. Scene-of-the-crime images, police photographs and technological diagrams are included in this book. Twenty-nine case studies explore the investigative power of the forensic anthropologist.
