Widens traditional concepts of forensic science to include humanitarian, social, and cultural aspects

Using the preservation of the dignity of the deceased as its foundation, Forensic Science and Humanitarian Action: Interacting with the Dead and the Living is a unique examination of the applications of humanitarian forensic science. Spanning two comprehensive volumes, the text is sufficiently detailed for forensic practitioners, yet accessible enough for non-specialists, and discusses both the latest technologies and real-world interactions. Arranged into five sections, this book addresses the `management of the dead"" across five major areas in humanitarian forensic science.

Volume One presents the first three of these areas: History, Theory, Practice, and Legal Foundation Basic Forensic Information to Trace Missing Persons and Stable Isotopes Forensics.

Topics covered include:
- Protection of The Missing and the Dead Under International Law
- Social, Cultural and Religious Factors in Humanitarian Forensic Science
- -Posthumous Dignity and the Importance in Returning Remains of the Deceased
- The New Disappeared - Migration and Forensic Science
- Stable Isotope Analysis in Forensic Anthropology

Volume Two covers two further areas of interest: DNA Analysis and the Forensic Identification Process. It concludes with a comprehensive set of case studies focused on identifying the deceased, and finding missing persons from around the globe, including:
- Forensic Human Identification from an Australian Perspective
- Skeletal Remains and Identification Processing at the FBI
- Migrant Deaths along the Texas/Mexico Border
- Humanitarian Work in Cyprus by The Committee on Missing Persons (CMP)
- Volcán De Fuego Eruption - Natural Disaster Response from Guatemala

Drawing upon a wide range of contributions from respected academics working in the field, Forensic Science and Humanitarian Action is a unique reference for forensic practitioners, communities of humanitarian workers, human rights defenders, and government and non-governmental officials.
