Simpson's Forensic Medicine, 11Ed Summary

Simpson's Forensic Medicine, 11Ed by Bernard Knight

'Simpson's Forensic Medicine' remains unsurpassed as the introductory text on forensic medicine for the student and the generalist. For the first time the eleventh edition introduces, in larger format, over 100 high quality colour photographs selected for their instructive potential.

The book continues to fulfil its chief objective which is to deal with the interface between medicine and law, in terms of medical examination of both the living and the dead for criminal and legal purposes, and the ethical and legal obligations of doctors in respect of their practice and behaviour. The text has been fully updated and revised, particularly in relation to child abuse and head injuries.

As international relevance is at the forefront, by concentrating on general principles which know no national restrictions, this new edition remains an invaluable practical resource for all those involved in forensic medicine worldwide.

Simpson's Forensic Medicine, 11Ed Reviews

An example of clarity and contains as much information as one could possibly hope to find in a book of just over 200 pages. With this new edition Simpson's Forensic Medicine has been rejuvenated and this face-lift will carry it through into the new century.
St George's Hospital Gazette

...very popular text. The introduction of colour not only immensely increases the quality and therefore the value of the illustrations but effectively transforms this very popular text into an atlas of forensic pathology as well as comprehensive reference for forensic medicine in general.
Journal of the Canadian Society of Forensic Medici
