    Forensic Investigations is an anthology designed to address the information gaps found in typical forensic textbooks. The articles selected for this text provide a deeper understanding of both the theory and the practical applications of forensic-investigation skills. Divided into five topical areas, these readings include some of the most up-to-date research studies and suggested practices in the field. Topics include The CSI Effect, Views on the Needs for Forensics, Photography, DNA/Fingerprints, and Digital Evidence. This book also includes historical articles that provide contextual background related to current trends.
