♥ Book Title : Missed Approach to Death
☯ Full Synopsis : "The aviation public is fascinated by accidents such as American 570, TWA, Egypt Air, and now the Columbia shuttle disaster, as well as the hundreds of private airplane accidents throughout the United States annually, including the pathos of the John F. Kennedy, Jr. flight to Martha’s Vineyard. This audience includes those who take commercial and private flights, those involved in aviation transportation, pilots, air traffic controllers, lawyers, law and aviation students, who will be captured by the events leading to the crash of a private airplane while one of the pilots attempted an instrument approach to a small city airport, after receiving a clearance to land from the FAA’s nearby Boston radar facility. Exposed is the trail of the tragedy, its investigation, and the litigation before an irascible and imperious Federal judge in Boston. Adding to the intensity is the allegation of Government intimidation of an expert, and the provoking air traffic control testimony of a former National Transportation Safety Board investigator hired by the parties suing the U.S., whose testimony contradicts the very radar data utilized by him in his earlier official NTSB accident report."Article| Andrew J.

♥ Book Title : Forensic Approaches to Death, Disaster and Abuse
☯ Full Synopsis : "During the last 100 years infant mortality rates have improved dramatically, yet even in a developed country such as Australia the physical health of infants varies greatly, despite advances in science and technology. It has now become clear that emotional and physical development is affected by many different variables. Not only must physical development and health support be adequate, but the presence of factors such as good-enough parenting, and the absence of others such as substance abuse and domestic violence, are now becoming better understood. So how best to work with families where infants are at risk? This is the substance of this book: to understand how to achieve improved outcomes for infants growing up in situations of risk, mainly in the area of the parents' mental health, but also in other related psychosocial circumstances that may impair parental functioning. These include migration, substance abuse, and infant hospitalisation. Throughout this book, the authors examine the effects of adverse life circumstances on infant and family and, in most cases, also describe assessments and interventions. Several chapters have been written by people personally affected by mental illness, or mental illness of a family member. This provides in-depth and often poignant understanding of the perspective of those living with the effects of such illnesses, and helps to expand our knowledge and skills to work with at-risk families."Article| Marc Oxenham| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Art on Trial
☯ Full Synopsis : "A man kidnaps his two children, murders one, and attempts to kill the other. The prosecution seeks the death penalty, while the defense employs an unusual strategy to avoid the sentence. The defendant’s attorneys turn to more than 100 examples of his artwork, created over many years, to determine whether he was mentally ill at the time he committed the crimes. Detailing an outstanding example of the use of forensic art therapy in a capital murder case, David Gussak, an art therapist contracted by the defense to analyze the images that were to be presented as evidence, recounts his findings and his testimony in court, as well as the future implications of his work for criminal proceedings. Gussak describes the role of the art therapist as an expert witness in a murder case, the way to use art as evidence, and the conclusions and assessments that professionals can draw from a defendant’s artworks. He examines the effectiveness of expert testimony as communicated by the prosecution, defense, and court, and weighs the moral, ethical, and legal consequences of relying on such evidence. For professionals and general readers, this gripping volume presents a convincing account of the ability of art to reflect a damaged and dangerous psyche. A leading text on an emerging field, Art on Trial demonstrates the practical applications of an innovative approach to clinical assessment and treatment."Article| David E. Gussak| Statement ..."

This volume will examine the responsibilities of expert witnesses and consultants, and how they may utilize principles, theories and methods from both sociology and psychology. It will show these disciplines together can improve the identification and apprehension of criminals, as well as enhance the administration of justice by clarifying profiles of criminal behavior, particularly in cases of serial killers, death threat makers, stalkers, and kidnappers.

♥ Book Title : The Expert Witness in Islamic Courts
☯ Full Synopsis : "Islam’s tense relationship with modernity is one of the most crucial issues of our time. Within Islamic legal systems, with their traditional preference for eyewitness testimony, this struggle has played a significant role in attitudes toward expert witnesses. Utilizing a uniquely comparative approach, Ron Shaham here examines the evolution of the role of such witnesses in a number of Arab countries from the premodern period to the present. Shaham begins with a history of expert testimony in medieval Islamic culture, analyzing the different roles played by male experts, especially physicians and architects, and females, particularly midwives. From there, he focuses on the case of Egypt, tracing the country’s reform of its traditional legal system along European lines beginning in the late nineteenth century. Returning to a broader perspective, Shaham draws on a variety of legal and historical sources to place the phenomenon of expert testimony in cultural context. A truly comprehensive resource, The Expert Witness in Islamic Courts will be sought out by a broad spectrum of scholars working in history, religion, gender studies, and law."Article| Ron Shaham| Statement ..."
