Editorial Reviews

?The volume's 12 chapters deal very comprehensively with some of the most pressing medicolegal and social issues of the day. The chapters are comprehensive, yet presented concisely, simply, and logically. They are highly readable and can be understood by all segments of the book's intended audience--physicians, attorneys, physician/attorneys, other health care and legal professionals, and the public at large . . . comprehensive in scope and coverage. The book and its contents deliver what was intended--a diverse, well-organized, and highly readable collection of essays by noted experts in the legal medicine field spanning the major areas of current emphasis. . . . As the best known and most respected work of its kind, Dr. Wecht's Legal Medicine annual has been the standard-bearer for the increasingly diversified, interdisciplinary literature in law and medicine since the late 1960s.?-Journal of Legal Medicine
