              Those tasked with investigating crime scenes come from a variety of backgrounds and varying levels of experience. Crime Scene Investigation Procedural Guide gives the novice investigator the procedures for almost any crime scene imaginable while providing the seasoned pro a ready... reference for crimes occurring even under the most unusual of circumstances. Designed as a stand-alone text or as a companion to Ross Gardner's Practical Crime Scene Investigation, the book details the precise steps that need to be taken when processing and analyzing a crime scene. Using a bulleted format for quick, easy access, the authors provide hands-on, concise instruction in a style friendly to a range of professionals. Topics discussed in this practical manual include: Preparation for response, initial response, scene management, and scene evaluation/analysis Scene photography, videography, sketching, and search and processing procedures Steps to be taken prior to releasing the scene Response, documentation, processing, and collection of evidence for specific crimes against persons and property Evaluation, processing, collection, and preservation of all items of evidence encountered at the scene, including friction ridge evidence, two- and three-dimensional impression evidence, and trace and biological evidence Bloodstain pattern documentation and shooting incident documentation Appendices include direction on working with potential blood-borne pathogens and worksheets for documenting and evaluating the scene and processing various types of evidence. A supplemental CD is included with downloadable forms for crime scene investigations. Adherence to the instructions provided in this guide will help ensure investigators that vital evidence is properly documented and pre

              Stories can inspire love, anger, fear and nostalgia - but what is going on in our brains when this happens? And how do our minds conjure up worlds and characters from the words we read on the page? Rapid advances in the scientific understanding of the brain have cast new light on... how we engage with literature. This book - collaboratively written by an experienced neuroscientist and literary critic and writer - explores and introduces these new insights. Reading a range of literary texts by writers such as Ian McEwan, Jim Crace and E.L. Doctorow in light of the latest scientific thought on the workings of the mind and brain. In this way Brain, Mind and the Literary Imagination demonstrates how literature taps into deep structures of memory and emotion that lie at the heart of our humanity.

              Wastewater Analysis for Substance Abuse Monitoring and Policy Development addresses how to estimate substance use and thereby evaluate policies intended to reduce the harms caused by drugs and other substances. Wastewater analysis (WWA) can provide efficient, affordable, fine-gra...ined and objective data on population substance use trends on a very large scale. The authors discuss the potential implications of WWA as a new method for understanding substance use in a variety of settings; and ignite a discourse with policy makers, criminologists, epidemiologists and other disciplines about the need for collaboration with WWA scientists. It also features explanation of the costs and harms of substance use with academic literature from criminological and epidemiological sources and reports from lead agencies. Additional features include: Details the origin of wastewater analysis in environmental science. Describes analytical chemistry methods for tracing a wide variety of substances, including illicit drugs, alcohol, tobacco and other chemicals. Explores major empirical problems in estimating population consumption of alcohol, tobacco and drugs at the international and national level. Examines principles of human research ethics and their application to wastewater analysis. This book is a valuable tool for analytical chemists, wastewater scientists, criminologists, as well as researchers and policy makers across disciplines who work in drug sectors.

              Cosmic inflation and dark energy hold the key to the origin and the eventual fate of the Universe. Despite the increasing prominence of these subjects in research and teaching over the past decade or more, no introductory textbook dedicated to these topics has been previously pub...lished. Dr Konstantinos Dimopoulos is a highly regarded expert in the field, and an experienced communicator of the subject to students. In this book he provides advanced undergraduate and early graduate students with an accessible introduction and equips them with the tools they need to understand the cosmology of cosmic inflation and dark energy. Features: Provides a concise, pedagogical crash course in big bang cosmology, focusing on the dynamics and the history of the Universe, with an emphasis on the role of dark energy Chapters contain questions and problems for readers to test their understanding The first book to make cosmic inflation and dark energy accessible to students

              Until the publication of Introduction to Nuclear Reactions, an introductory reference on nonrelativistic nuclear reactions had been unavailable. Providing a concise overview of nuclear reactions, this reference discusses the main formalisms, ranging from basic laws to the final f...ormulae used to calculate measurable quantities. Well known in their fields, the authors begin with a discussion of scattering theory followed by a study of its applications to specific nuclear reactions. Early chapters give a framework of scattering theory that can be easily understood by the novice. These chapters also serve as an introduction to the underlying physical ideas. The largest section of the book comprises the physical models that have been developed to account for the various aspects of nuclear reaction phenomena. The final chapters survey applications of the eikonal wavefunction to nuclear reactions as well as examine the important branch of nuclear transport equations. By combining a thorough theoretical approach with applications to recent experimental data, Introduction to Nuclear Reactions helps you understand the results of experimental measurements rather than describe how they are made. A clear treatment of the topics and coherent organization make this information understandable to students and professionals with a solid foundation in physics as well as to those with a more general science and technology background.

              Tim Flannery dedicated the first edition of The Weather Makers to children - 'to all of their generation who will have to live with the consequences of our decisions.' Seventy percent of the people who are alive now will be alive in 2050. This is the date, many scientists agree, ...by which we have to cut our carbon emissions by 70%. Since its publication in September 2005, The Weather Makers has had a huge impact on our consciousness of climate change. It has changed minds and hearts. This audiobook now demands a younger audience - the school children who will inherit the new climate which their parents and grandparents have helped to create. These new readers will have a chance to act on Tim Flannery's advice about the dangers of profligate use of fossil fuels and to find the solutions to save our planet. Today's teenagers are the vital audience for an audiobook about the most urgent issue of our time and of their future. This revised and updated Young Adult edition is written in a style that is accessible and engaging.
