Despite the many ethical challenges that may impact forensic anthropologists, discourse and training in ethics are limited.

Provides comprehensive coverage of everything that students and practitioners need to know about working in the field of forensic anthropology Forensic anthropology has been plagued by questions of scientific validity and rigor despite its acceptance as a section in the American Academy of Forensic Sciences nearly half a century ago. Critics have viewed it as a laboratory-based applied subfield of biological anthropology, and characterised it as emphasising methodology over theory. This book shows that these views are not only antiquated, but inadequate and inaccurate. Forensic Anthropology: Theoretical Framework and Scientific Basis introduces readers to all of the theoretical and scientific foundations of forensic anthropology — beginning with how it was influenced by the early theoretical approaches of Tyler, Morgan, Spencer and Darwin. It instructs on how modern forensic science relies on an interdisciplinary approach — with research being conducted in the fields of archaeology, physics, geology and other disciplines. This modern approach to theory in forensic anthropology is presented through the introduction and discussion of Foundational, Interpretive and Methodological theories. Sections cover: Bias and Objectivity in Forensic Anthropology Theory and Practice; The Theory and Science Behind Biological Profile and Personal Identification; Scientific Foundation for Interpretations of Antemortem, Perimortem, and Postmortem Processes; and Interdisciplinary Influences, Legal Ramifications and Future Directions. Illustrates important aspects of the theory building process and reflects methods for strengthening the scientific framework of forensic anthropology as a discipline Inspired by the “Application of Theory to Forensic Anthropology” symposium presented at the 67th annual meeting of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences Chapters written by experts in the field who were presenters at the symposium Forensic Anthropology: Theoretical Framework and Scientific Basis is ideal for university courses in anthropological science, forensic science, criminal science and forensic archaeology.

Bei seinem letzten Einsatz ist der forensische Anthropologe David Hunter nur knapp dem Tod entronnen. Von einer vollständigen Genesung ist er weit entfernt. Ihn quält die Frage, ob er seinem Beruf noch gewachsen ist. Zunächst sagt David alle neuen Aufträge ab, dennoch kommt er nicht zur Ruhe. Er beschließt, einen Forschungsaufenthalt auf der «Body Farm» in Tennessee einzulegen – einer bekannten Akademie für forensische Anthropologie, an der er vor vielen Jahren sein Handwerk erlernt hat. Dort trifft David seinen Mentor Tom Lieberman wieder. Tom bittet ihn, ihm bei einem schwierigen Fall zu helfen. Das Opfer wurde gefoltert, die Leiche ist bis zur Unkenntlichkeit zersetzt – weit stärker, als es der Fall sein dürfte. Am Tatort finden sich Fingerabdrücke, der Täter scheint festzustehen. Doch schon bald stellt sich heraus, dass nichts so ist, wie es auf den ersten Blick aussieht... «‹Leichenblässe›, der neue Thriller von Simon Beckett, geht wie seine Vorgänger unter die Haut. Spannend und tiefgründig!» (Freundin)

Ein heftiger Schlag. Rotes Blut im Wasser des Sees. Danach nur noch Schwarz. Anna Winger starb nicht an jenem Tag, aber seither lebt sie in Angst. Rastlos zieht sie mit ihrem Sohn von Stadt zu Stadt, scheut den Kontakt zu anderen Menschen. Als Graphologin muss sie ihr Gegenüber nicht sehen, um in ihm lesen zu können, es reicht ein Blick auf dessen Handschrift. Dann verschwindet ein zweijähriger Junge und seine Babysitterin wird ermordet. Die einzige Spur: eine handschriftliche Notiz. Anna wird hinzugezogen, und alles, was sie für immer hinter sich lassen wollte – die Dunkelheit, die Gewalt, der Tod –, drängt unaufhaltsam an die Oberfläche ...

Der grausame Mord an der elfjährigen Emily Steiner schockiert die Kleinstadt Black Mountain. Die Gerichtsmedizinerin Kay Scarpetta steht zunächst vor unlösbaren Rätseln. Doch dann deuten Spuren an der verstümmelten Leiche auf einen Täter hin, der aus Emilys engstem Umfeld stammen muss. Wurde das Mädchen Opfer einer düsteren Familientragödie? Kay Scarpettas Untersuchungen in dem Mordfall des elfjährigen Mädchens laufen anfangs ins Leere, da Emilys Tod einfach zu viele Fragen aufwirft: Was verschweigt Emilys Mutter? Hat der mysteriöse Selbstmord eines Polizisten etwas mit dem Tod des Mädchens zu tun? Und warum verübt ein Unbekannter einen Mordanschlag auf Scarpettas Nichte Lucy? Als Scarpetta auf ein entscheidendes Indiz stößt, muss ihr die "Body Farm" helfen: ein forensisches Labor, das menschliche Verwesungsprozesse erforscht und durch seine spektakulären Ergebnisse schon mehrmals geholfen hat, die schwierigsten Mordfälle aufzuklären.
