Forensic Pathology: Principles and Practice is an extensively
illustrated reference book that contains more than 1800 color
photographs accompanied by well-considered text that thoroughly explains
representative topics, and also provides abundant, up-to-date
references for further reading. This well-written volume uses a
case-oriented format to address, explain and guide the reader through
the varied topics encountered by forensic pathologists. It will benefit
not only the experienced forensic pathologist, but also the hospital
pathologist who occasionally performs medicolegal autopsies. Doctors in
training and those law enforcement officials investigating the broad
spectrum of sudden, unexpected and violent deaths that may fall within
the jurisdiction of medicolegal death investigators will also find this
an invaluable resource.

* Large, colorful photographs which beautifully illustrate the concepts outlined in the text.
Sample descriptions of pathological lesions which serve to aid
pathologists in reporting their findings to law enforcement agencies,
attorneys, and others involved in investigations of sudden death.
Forensic Pathology: Principles
& Practice is the first text of Forensic Pathology that provides
in-depth discussion, fairly balances controversial topics, is lavishly
illustrated, and provides practical guidelines."
- Charles V. Wetli, M.D., Chief Medical Examiner & Director of Forensic Sciences, Suffolk County, NY

book under review is what one would always like to have on one's desk.
It is informative, factual, well-referenced, exhaustive and extremely
well illustrated. It immediately grasps one's attention not only because
it gives practical tips throughout, but also because of its rich and
profuse illustrations. How richly is the book illustrated can be gauged
by the fact that there are a total of more than 1800 photographs (all in
full color) scattered over 671 pages of text - about 3 photographs per
There are some other interesting features in this book too,
which set it apart from other run-of-the-mill kind of texts. One which I especially liked - and am sure, most others will like too - is a feature called "take home message". You can read the text and cases, and
then the editors will tend to drive home the point through this feature. This feature should be most useful for younger pathologists and
those in training for whom this book is an absolute must.
The book is full of such practical tips throughout. To my mind the two most
valuable features of this book are its rich and profuse illustrations
and its practical tips. Most current books are deficient in these.
This book can be heartily recommended not only to trainees and younger
pathologists, who obviously would benefit greatly from this book, but also to senior pathologists if only to re-alert them to certain common pitfalls. Certainly everyone would get to see a number of unique cases
irrespective of the level of his experience.
Besides pathologists at whom this book is mainly aimed, it should also prove useful for police
officers, coroners, magistrates and all other law enforcement officers.
Illustrative photographs should prove useful to this section. I
thoroughly enjoyed this book, and this book is going to my companion for
the rest of my life."
- Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology

"The text is richly supported by color photographs that are nothing short of
spectacular. . .This text will serve as a reference for the
practicing forensic pathologist. Additionally, those embarking upon
preparation for the Board examination in forensic pathology will find
this text very useful."
- Journal of Forensic Science

"This book is, undoubtedly, the most extensively illustrated textbook of
forensic pathology so far. When reading Forensic Pathology, one
recognizes very quickly that this book is created by highly experienced
forensic pathologists. The book is well written and the references are
up to date."
- Michael Tsokos, MD, Institute of Legal Medicine, University of Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany
