MINI ATLAS OF FORENSIC MEDICINE

ASHESH GUNWANTRAO
Indira Gandhi Govt. Medical College, India

There are a number of large, expensive, voluminous works that deal with forensic medicine in minute detail, but which can be regarded as over-meticulous and heavy going. This mini atlas is the opposite – it is clear, concise, easy to read, and provides the right level of description and explanation to each illustrated example.

The book consists of 20 chapters divided into 2 sections, Morbid Forensic Medicine, and Clinical Forensic Medicine. There are over 300 colour photos, which can also be viewed on screen via the free CD Rom. Some medical students only have to study forensic medicine for a few weeks. For others the subject is a major part of their degree. This book will be an invaluable pocket resource for them, and indeed for all those whose career requires some knowledge of forensic medicine.
