The Coming of the New Deal or Forensic Science

The Coming of the New Deal: 1922-1935: The Age of Roosevelt, Volume II

Author: Arthur M Schlesinger

The Coming of the New Deal, 1933-1935, volume two of Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and biographer Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.'s Age of Roosevelt series, describes Franklin Delano Roosevelt's first tumultuous years in the White House. Coming into office at the bottom of the Great Depression, FDR told the American people that they have nothing to fear but fear itself. The conventional wisdom having failed, he tried unorthodox remedies to avert economic collapse. His first hundred days restored national morale, and his New Dealers filled Washington with new approaches to recovery and reform. Combining idealistic ends with realistic means, Roosevelt proposed to humanize, redeem, and rescue capitalism. The Coming of the New Deal, written with Schlesinger's customary verve, is a gripping account of critical years in the history of the republic.

Library Journal

While a lot of ink has been spilled profiling FDR, Schlesinger's three-volume work remains among the best efforts. Released in the late 1950s, the trio begins with a broader overview of his early political career and then moves into dissections of far shorter, distinct periods in his ascent to the White House and first term as president. These reprints sport new introductions by the author. Essential for all history and political science collections. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Forensic Science: An Introduction to Scientific and Investigative Techniques

Author: Stuart H James

A comprehensive overview of forensic science in its broadest sense, this book reaches beyond the scope of other introductory texts that concentrate primarily on criminalistics. It features an extensive range of fundamental topics with the technical and scientific detail necessary to understand the breadth of the forensic sciences. Changes in the third edition include a new forward by James Starrs and a new chapter on forensic photography, completely rewritten chapters on computer forensics and completely rewritten chapter on DNA analysis, expanded information on crime scenes and forensic pathology, and additional photographs for use in lectures provided on CD.


Encompassing classic criminalistics and the latest techniques, this introductory text presents forensic science with cases and techniques made accessible to nonscientists at the advanced high school and undergraduate level. The text covers forensic pathology and related specialties, evaluation of the crime scene, forensic science in the laboratory, forensic engineering, cybertechnology and forensic science, forensic application of the social sciences, and legal and ethical issues in forensic science. Learning features include quizes, an extensive glossary, numerous color photos, and appendices on professional guidelines, safety precautions, and web sites. The authors are forensic consultants.
