    In 465 alphabetically arranged essays ranging in length from 500 to 3,000 words, Forensic Science approaches its subject from multiple directions. One of the primary approaches is from the points of view of forensic investigators. In addition to its core essays on subspecialties and allied fields, including those listed above, the set has essays on specific types of investigations, such as arson, child abduction and kidnapping, homicide, and computer crime; both general and specific investigative techniques, such as autopsies, ballistics, chromatography, crime scene documentation, fingerprint analysis, and polygraph analysis; specialized equipment, such as bomb and nuclear detection devices; and types of evidence, such as fire debris, fibers and filaments, glass, and blood residue and stains. Other essays cover both general and specific aspects of chemical and biological agents, such as biotoxins, carbon monoxide, illicit drugs, and a variety of poisons. Additional essays examine specific types of injuries, diseases, and other medical conditions, such as gunshot and knife wounds, electrical injuries, bubonic plague, hemorrhagic fevers and diseases, and smallpox. Attention is also given to the many professional organizations in forensic science fields, such as the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, the International Association for Indentification, and the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors.
