Book Description

The "CSI effect" has brought an explosion of interest in the forensic sciences, leading to the development of new programs in universities across the world. While dozens of professional texts on the science of fingerprint are available, few are designed specifically for students. An essential learning tool for classes in fingerprinting and impression evidence, of Fingerprint Analysis takes students from an understanding of the historical background of fingerprint evidence to seeing how it plays out in a present-day courtroom.

Using a pedagogical format, with each chapter building on the previous one, the book is divided into three sections. The first explains the history and of fingerprint analysis, fingerprint and classification, and the concept of biometrics―the practice of using unique biological measurements or features to identify individuals. The second section discusses forensic light sources and and chemical methods. Section Three covers fingerprint analysis with chapters on documentation, crime scene , fingerprint and palm print comparisons, and courtroom testimony.

Designed for classroom use, each chapter contains key terms, learning objectives, a chapter summary, and review questions to test students’ assimilation of the material. Ample diagrams, case studies, and photos demonstrate concepts in a way that prepares students for working actual cases.
