Description

This study outlines the scientific methods and techniques required to provide information of forensic value from documents. The established methods of analysis are covered, from the comparison of handwriting for forensic purposes to the detection of altered and counterfeit documents. The author also examines the presentation of evidence, the forensic scientist's role in criminology and the increasingly sophisticated range of analytical tools, such as scanning electron microscopy. The book offers a broad introduction to this subject and is aimed at those who use the services of the document examiner, such as lawyers and police officers, as well as analytical and forensic scientists.
