Modernization and globalization are spreading many homogenizing sets of institutions and cultural codes across the world’s societies in almost all domains of life including law and justice.

©2013
ISBN: 978-1-4496-2674-7

Death Investigations is the first installment of the new Jones & Bartlett Learning Guides to Law Enforcement Investigation series! Many texts on criminal investigation present the same investigative process for all types of crime. However, each crime type requires a unique approach with distinct steps. An investigation involving a death is no different. All incidents of death should be processed as a homicide until it can be proven otherwise. In order to do so correctly, all investigative procedures specifically related to death investigation should be applied. Death Investigations is the first installment of the new Jones & Bartlett Learning Guides to Law Enforcement Investigation Series and presents the specific functions and processes necessary to accurately assess and document cases involving a death. It is critical for students preparing for a career in law enforcement and investigation to have a complete understanding of all death types (homicides, suicide, accident, natural, and undetermined), not simply homicides. Without delving too deep into the forensics or medico-legal aspects of death (i.e. gunshot wounds, sharp force injuries, etc.), this resource provides readers with the information necessary to accurately resolve the cases involving a death assigned to them as police officers and law enforcement personnel.

This topic can be very challenging and intimidating for students, however, veteran author, Anna Curren breaks down this subject using the dimensional analysis method which reduces all calculations into a single, easy-to-solve equation. This takes the fear-factor out of manual math altogether. Many students have raved about how previous editions of this text helped them through their medical math course and succeed in clinical practice. The Sixth Edition of Dimensional Analysis for Meds: Refocusing on Essential Metric Calculations has been streamlined to present only the essential information. The first chapter begins with an overview of the metric system; as Curren states, 98% of all calculations involve metric measures. The text is structured to feature content in small instructional steps followed by assessments to reinforce what has been learned. In an effort to prevent annual hospital drug dose errors, the latest drug dosage abbreviations and metric notations are included giving nurses the knowledge they need to safely care for their patients.

Thought-provoking features, including Thought Experiments boxes that present imagined scenarios to illustrate the principles under discussion and Justice in Context boxes that consider the real-life applications of concepts, along with clearly presented learning objectives, create a strong foundation in key concepts, pertinent vocabulary, and critical-thinking and reasoning skills. Readers are introduced to moral reasoning and the underpinnings of philosophical approaches to justice, including readings from critical philosophers such as Aristotle, Augustine, Locke, Kant, and Rawls. Accessible but rigorous, Dimensions of Justice: Ethical Issues in the Administration of Criminal Law provides a unique and innovative approach that challenges students to develop a new analytical framework for thinking about the criminal justice system.
