Book Summary: Scores of talented and dedicated people serve the forensic science community, performing vitally important work. However, they are often constrained by lack of adequate resources, sound policies, and national support. It is clear that change and advancements, both systematic and scientific, are needed in a number of forensic science disciplines to ensure the reliability of work, establish enforceable standards, and promote best practices with consistent application. Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States: A Path Forward provides a detailed plan for addressing these needs and suggests the creation of a new government entity, the National Institute of Forensic Science, to establish and enforce standards within the forensic science community. The benefits of improving and regulating the forensic science disciplines are clear: assisting law enforcement officials, enhancing homeland security, and reducing the risk of wrongful conviction and exoneration. Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States gives a full account of what is needed to advance the forensic science disciplines, including upgrading of systems and organizational structures, better training, widespread adoption of uniform and enforceable best practices, and mandatory certification and accreditation programs. While this book provides an essential call-to-action for congress and policy makers, it also serves as a vital tool for law enforcement agencies, criminal prosecutors and attorneys, and forensic science educators.
Book Summary: A concise history of Germans in Minesota including immigration pattern, the Catholic and Lutheran churches, cultural organizations, business and politics especially in the World War 1 year. Minnesota is often associated with its Scandinavian heritage, but in fact Germans are the largest single immigrant group in Minnesota history and were the largest ancestry group in the 2000 census. Author Kathleen Neils conzen tells the story of German Americans and their profound influence on Minnesota history and culture. Conzen recounts their triumphs and struggles over the last 150 years in a clear and concise narrative. Landing in poverty, Germans transformed acres of wilderness into productive farms and brought to America their love of art, music and sociability. Immigrants came to America intent on creating in the words of one agent, "an earthly paradise of this Minnesota "and" a new Germany" soon rose in Stearns Country. Conzen explores not only the well known enclaves in Brown and stearns Countries but also looks at the smaller communities of Winona, on the Iron Range, and along the North Shore, as well as in the Twin Cities. In recent times, a renewed interest in German heritage can be seen in towns like New Ulm, home to the thirty-two-foot statue of Hermann the German, hero of the wars against the ancient Roman legions, and Heritagefest, the ethnic heritage festival that occurs every summer. Germans in Minnesota is the fifth book in The People of Minnesota, a new series dedicated to telling the history of the state through the stories of its ethnic groups in accessible and illustrated paperbacks. Future volumes include Chinese in Minnesota (due Fall 2003), Mexicans in Minnesota (due Spring2004, Swedes in Minnesota (due Spring 2004), Poles in Minnesota (due Fall 2004), Ojibwe in Minnesota, Dakota in Minnesota, and Hmong in Minnesota.
