Reviews


"The book is timely and important, it is pleasantly written, generally with a positive 'open' mind to what stable isotope analysis can and cannot contribute to forensic and scientific investigations.  It is well produced and reasonably priced.  The figures, tables, and photographs in the book are generally informative and this aiding the overall (educational) value of the book." (MassMatters, November 2010)

"In this comprehensive book, with its copious literature references, we are offered, for the first time, a carefully written account of an exciting new field of endeavour: its history, development, technology, modus operandi, potential and future." (Chemistry & Industry, August 23, 2010)

"This is the first book exclusively dealing with forensic isotope analysis and pulls together all existing research in this emerging field."  In the book, topics are introduced using examples and real-life case studies such as food quality control where isotope analysis has already had a major impact, in terms of consumer protection. These examples illustrate the underlying principles of isotope profiles or signatures."  (Bio-Dundee, 1 November 2010)
