Malcolm Gladwell, Bestsellerautor und Star des amerikanischen Buchmarkts, hat die wahren Ursachen des Erfolgs untersucht und darüber ein lehrreiches, faszinierendes Buch geschrieben. Es steckt voller Geschichten und Beispiele, die zeigen, dass auch außergewöhnlicher Erfolg selten etwas mit individuellen Eigenschaften zu tun hat, sondern mit Gegebenheiten, die es dem einen leicht und dem anderen unmöglich machen, erfolgreich zu sein. Die Frage ist nicht, wie jemand ist, sondern woher er kommt: Welche Bedingungen haben diesen Menschen hervorgebracht? Auf seiner anregenden intellektuellen Erkundung der Welt der Überflieger erklärt Gladwell unter anderem das Geheimnis der Softwaremilliardäre, wie man ein herausragender Fußballer wird, warum Asiaten so gut in Mathe sind und was die Beatles zur größten Band aller Zeiten machte.

This book is a collection of readings introducing the police science student to the field of criminalistics and technological advancements in crime prevention and investigation. The law enforcement officer, as the vital link between crime and punishment, must always be aware of the possibilities for collaboration between his own crime prevention and investigation efforts and the capabilities of the criminalistics laboratory. The format of this book is that of a collection of readings and, as such, exposes the student to the works of a wide variety of members of the scientific, academic, and professional criminalistics communities. In addition to covering the more traditional subject areas of evidence collection and preservation, forensic investigations, fingerprints and ballistics, two sections of the volume are devoted to examining the technological advances made in crime prevention and investigation of modern electronics, as in the case of voiceprinting. Individual articles cover such specialized areas as the role of criminalistics in solving whitecollar crimes, a 20-characteristic classification system for fraudulent checks, and the formulation of a national criminalistics research program.
