Présentation de l'éditeur

For laboratory courses in human osteology (human skeletal anatomy) and forensic anthropology at the junior/senior level.

This manual is designed to serve three purposes: to be used as a general introduction to the field of forensic anthropology; as a framework for training; and as a practical reference tool. The text will make students aware of the challenges and responsibilities of the forensic scientist, the multidisciplinary nature of the work, and the international potential for the forensic sciences.

Biographie de l'auteur

Karen Ramey Burns is a practicing forensic anthropologist, teacher, writer, and human rights worker. She received her graduate education in forensic anthropology under the direction of the late Dr. William R.

She continues to serve the state of Georgia as a consultant in forensic anthropology and as an appointed member of the Georgia Council on American Indian Concerns. She has testified as an expert witness in local,

Dr. Burns has devoted much of her professional career to international work, providing educational and technical assistance in the excavation and identification of human remains in Latin America, Haiti, the Middle East, and Africa. She documented war crimes in Iraq after the Gulf War (1991) and provided testimony in the Raboteau Trial in Gonaïve, Haiti (2000). She is the author of the “Protocol for Disinterment and Analysis of Skeletal Remains,” in the Manual for the Effective Prevention and Investigation of Extra-Legal, Arbitrary, and Summary Executions (1991), a United Nations publication.

Dr. Burns has contributed to several historic research projects, including a study of the Phoenician genocide in North Africa (Carthage), the identification of the revolutionary war hero Casimir Pulaski, and the search for Amelia Earhart. Dr. Burns is a coauthor of the award-winning book Amelia Earhart’s Shoes, Is the Mystery Solved? (2001), a discourse on the archaeological investigation.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 THIS BOOK IS GREAT!!!! 14 octobre 2003

I am physician-lawyer from the Philippines. I practice in the field of Clinical Forensic Medicine with special interest in Forensic Anthropology. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in forensics-be they lawyers, physicians, judges and law enforcement officers. This book is "the" book if you want to get started in forensic anthropology and forensic osteology.It provides an introduction to osteology and how it is used to determine age, sex and race. The book outlines the basics of laboratory analysis of skeletal remains, field methods used in forensic anthropology,documentation, report writing, court testimony, and human rights application of forensic anthropology. Forensic forms used in actual cases are even included.
The book is highly recommended to students of forensic anthropology and a must read for professionals from other subspeciaties of forensics, lawyers and judges who deal with forensic cases.

I am using this text in the anthropology lab with my students of Introduction to Forensic Sciences. As a former student of Dr. Ramey Burns, I am convinced she is an excellent educator who enjoys working with new generations of forensic scientists. Students from First World societies find chapter 15 extremely helpful in our seminar discussions about the importance to learn and to respect local cultures when investigating all sort of crimes. For the next edition of the manual, I would like to recommend the inclusion of scientific advancements in Latin America the author has contributed to develop. For instance, normative standards from populations with Latin American biological affiliation may be used in the identification of skeletal remains here in North America.

Unfortunately this book is seriously out of date with the current forensic knowledge. If you want some bathroom reading material this is a good book for it. There are wonderful illustrations and graphs but for real forensic study, you should check out some other titles. The concepts, wording, and how to go about things are outdated as of 2013 when I got this book for a forensic anthropology class with a professor currently in the field. She used this text as a 'what not to do today' in the field and as a history lesson. When this was actually written (late 1990's it is said but I cannot prove this statement) it was a good look at forensic anthropology and is a good read in learning the history of the science. But not for today's field practice. I am not dissing the author, she was wonderful in her time, I just wish the publisher didn't put this outdated text to print just because she died.

The publisher has not updated any of the author information since the first edition run as Karen Ramey Burns died January 7, 2012 and this edition came out a month later. According to her LinkedIn account she was a Forensic Anthropologist at the University of Utah Department of Anthropology from 2008 until her death in 2012 which is 4 years, she did Equipo Colombiano Interdisciplinario de Trabajo Forense y Asistencia Psicosocial at Miembro del Comite Directivo Equipo Colombiano Interdisciplinario de Trabajo Forense y Asistencia Psicosocial for 7 years (2005 - 2012).

She was also part of the Directory Committee for EQUITAS from 2005 - 2012 and was first concidered an Forensic Anthropologist for TIGHAR 1999 - 2012 as well as working at the University of Georgia as an Adjunct Professor from 1995 - 2006 (11 years). The years tally on her LinkedIn is incorrect as they do not have her listed as deceased.

I used this book for my Intro to Foensic Anbthropology class and continued to use it in Grad School. It is the only book I can find that has age determination from sternal rib ends.(not even "Standards" has it). HIGHLY recommend!

This book is amazing for the beginning learner on forensic anthropology. Even for someone who needs to brush up on their skills, this book is awesome. It has absolutely everything you would need to know from locating a grave to court trial procedures to professionalism guidelines and report writting skills. This book is SO helpful for a student just starting to learn about forensic anthropology and everything that goes along with it. I definitely recommend this book for beginning forensic anthropology classes as it is extremely useful. It will help with field work, court work and everything in between.
