visión de conjunto:Reseña del editor Through a set of unique case studies written by an international group of practicing forensic anthropologists Case Studies in Forensic Anthropology: Bonified Skeletons prepares students and professionals for the diverse range of cases and challenges they will encounter in the field. Every forensic anthropology case is unique. Practitioners routinely face new challenges and unexpected outcomes. Courses and introductory texts generally address standard or ideal cases.

Most forensic anthropologists have encountered unconventional cases with surprising results. While these cases act as continuing education for practitioners―better preparing them for future encounters― such learning opportunities may be limited by the extent of personal experiences. This text exposes practitioners and students to a diverse array of case examples they may not otherwise encounter sharing experiential knowledge and contributing to the advancement the field.
Case Studies in Forensic Anthropology aims to both prepare aspiring forensic anthropologists and inform current practitioners. The cases are interesting and unique detailing how specific challenges contribute to the body of forensic anthropological knowledge and practice.
