Murray, Elizabeth A. (Elizabeth Ann) 1958- (Author). Reay, Alisha. (Added Author). Leven, Jon. (Added Author). Allen, Jim M. (Added Author).

Summary: "Although forensic science has become an extremely popular and pervasive subject in television programs, films, and literature, many members of the general public have only a limited understanding of the science behind forensic evidence and investigations. This course introduces the multidisciplinary field of forensic science, using real casework to illustrate basic principles."--p. 1 of course guidebook.
