This is a comprehensive reference text that approaches the forensic aspects of trauma from the conditions in which they arise. It looks at the circumstances in which injuries occur, the types of injury sustained and their avoidance/prevention. The body's reaction, both physiological and psychological, to injury is described from a forensic perspective, with emphasis on the type of violent injuries likely to be encountered by the general surgeon and hospital pathologist. This third edition has an increased level of detail and takes into account the changing concerns with regard to trauma.
