Now available in its Fifth Edition, Garriott1s Medicolegal Aspects of Alcohol is the hands-down indispensable textbook for forensic toxicology and for anyone involved with the medicolegal aspects of alcohol. Alcohol-related litigation typically pertains to arrests of drinking drivers, but also includes industrial accidents, public transport accidents, and violent crimes. The medicolegal aspects of alcohol are complex topics because so many different components are present in alcohol-related criminal and civil cases. Forensic alcohol analysis is the most frequently performed of all forensic laboratory tests. It is extremely important that alcohol analyses be preformed accurately and correctly and that the results are properly interpreted. Forensic toxicologists and pathologists are often called on to interpret the alcohol concentrations found in the specimens. Often, the results are deemed meaningless because samples are mishandled, equipment is incorrectly calibrated, or the results are incorrectly reported. This fifth revised edition of the original text, Medicolegal Aspects of Alcohol in Biological Specimens (1988), is designed to continue to provide you with up-to-date and authoritative information on alcohol in all aspects of its involvement in the forensic sciences. The original authors have provided updated science and information in their topic areas, and new authors with special expertise have been brought on board. All topics in the original book have been revised and expanded and new sections including prosecution and defense of DUI cases have been added. The wealth of information presented in this new fifth edition makes it an invaluable resource when investigating and litigating cases involving alcohol.
