Abstract: This advanced text examines several areas pertinent in today's society in the context of human identification. While some would think of forensic human identification as the physical identification of human remains or identification of offenders, the discussion here looks at a broader definition, to include several additional aspects, for example, online, sexual and biometric identities. Problems associated with investigative practice are discussed, including the developing use of the Internet as a distribution and communication medium for criminal activities, as well as miscarriages of justice resultant from flawed applications or interpretations of forensic evidence and the future of forensic science provision. Dialogue is undertaken from an international perspective, as criminal activity is rarely limited by geographical or procedural boundaries. Where appropriate, case studies are provided to illustrate the use of techniques and the associated problems described in the text. The book is divided into five parts: (I) Identifying the Unknown, (II) Identification from Soft and Hard Tissues, (III) Digital and Biometric Evidence, (IV) Legal Issues: An International Perspective and (V) Future Considerations and Conclusions.
