I obtained a soft copy of this book during the last days of my post graduation from my friend. At least! For undergraduate students this book offers a good glimpse into the subject. Additionally, some topics are covered nicely like legal procedures and related. I appreciate the book for being concise, yet lucid and accurate.

dear sir, it is mentioned in HANGING pg 56 that dribling marks of salina from the angle of mandible but instead of this it should be -dribling marks of saliva seen from the angle of mouth when the head is tilted on either side depend on the site of knot and if the knot is at postreior as in typical hanging, the marks may appear as shiny on the chest and upeer part of the chest. and on pg 57 in homicidal hanging -it should be rare but not uncommen, the word "'group of people"'should be deleted .thanks.
