In its new second edition, Investigating Chemistry: A Forensic Science Perspective
remains the only book that uses the inherently fascinating topics of crime and criminal investigations as a context for teaching the fundamental chemical concepts most often covered in an introductory nonmajors course. Covering all the standard topics, Matthew Johll capitalizes on the surge of interest in the scientific investigation of crime (as sparked by CSI
and other television shows), bringing together the theme of forensic science and the fundamentals of chemistry in ways that are effective and accessible for students.
This edition features refined explanations of the chemical concepts, which are the core of the book, as well as a more thoroughly integrated forensic theme, updated features, and an expanded media/supplements package.
