An Introduction to Scientific Detective Work

This book explains the craft of scientific detective work via a series of case studies, with an historical case (Trojans and Etruscans) and a criminal one (the 2001 anthrax mailings) for comparison. It is intended for scientists and lay readers interested in detective techniques, creativity, the theory and practice of science, respiratory medicine, photomedicine, transdermal pharmacology, and the scientific mechanisms of natural medical therapies. Intriguing Anomalies concludes with proofs of a Theory of the Animal Magnetoreceptor and of a Theory of the Red Blood Cells as well as a chapter of key lessons for researchers regarding the application of qualitative analytical techniques in scientific detective work.
