Forensics Under Fire

Are Bad Science and Dueling Experts Corrupting Criminal Justice?

€ 32.14

A critical analysis of the techniques of criminal investigation argues that the problems in the practice of forensic science allow offenders to escape justice and can also lead to the imprisonment of innocent people, examining the dichotomy between popular views of forensic science and the ways in which real-life cases may be handled.
