Both World War I and World War II played an influential role in the evolution of plastic and maxillofacial surgery in the first half of the 20th century. This book examines four of the key figures involved in this wartime surgery: Sir Harold Gillies, Sir Archibald McIndoe, Rainsford Mowlem, and Henry Pickerill. The book describes how these surgeons revolutionized plastic surgery and the treatment of facial trauma, working on soldiers, fighter pilots, and civilians who were disfigured by bombs, shrapnel, and burns. Eventually, these four men were supported by a vast medical enterprise that included surgeons, dentists, anaesthetists, artists, photographers, nurses, and orderlies. The book is fully illustrated with photos, drawings, and case notes by the surgeons and war artists from World War I military hospitals at Boulogne-sur-Mer, Aldershot, and Sidcup, as well as civilian hospitals at East Grinstead, Basingstoke, and Hill End during World War II. The book includes a DVD containing a series of four 16-mm cinematographic instructional films - 'Techniques in Plastic Surgery' - produced in 1945 and showing Rainsford Mowlem performing a variety of plastic surgery operations. Reconstructing Faces is a must for anyone interested in the history of medicine and the treatment of casualties in World Wars I and II.

What did Robert the Bruce really look like? Or a Bronze Age man from Lewis? Find out in this look at the techniques and detective work involved in facial reconstruction. This book describes how innovations in science and technology can assist in producing replica skulls from damaged or fragile archaeological material, and how the clues gained from contemporary descriptions, portraits and busts enable us to give faces back to our ancestors. Six case studies are examined, including Robert the Bruce, George Buchanan and an ancient Eqyptian princess.

Applied also to modern criminal investigations, facial reconstruction brings together the work of numerous specialists ranging from dentists to geneticists, and from archaeologists to radiologists. The important historical implications of their work are no more strongly demonstrated than in their confirmation that the body resting in Tomb II at Verginia was that of King Philip II, the father of Alexander the Great: when the face was reconstructed, the eye-injury received by Philip at Methone was unmistakable. Making Faces takes the reader into byways of forensic study, surgery and folklore and reveals how the art of facial reconstruction has opened up whole new vistas of the past.

Face Recognition: Cognitive and Computational Processes critically discusses current research in face recognition, leading to an original approach with criminological applications. The book covers • The methodological and philosophical basis of research in face recognition. • Findings and their explanations, conceptual issues, theories and models of face recognition • The Catch Model (Rakover & Cahlon) for reconstructing (identifying) a face from memory, and other models and methods of face reconstruction. • Conscious perception and recognition of faces. The book also discusses original ideas on conceptualizing face perception and recognition in tasks of facial cognition, developing the Schema Theory and the Catch Model, and introducing Rakover & Cahlon's discovery of the proposed law of Face Recognition by Similarity (FRBS).
