This expanded new edition provides law enforcement personnel, firefighters, and security professionals with the most up-to-date information and procedures on the investigation, detection, and disposal of dangerous bombs and explosives and the evidence obtained from them. The text contains a general outline of the procedures employed in processing both commercial and homemade explosives, military explosive ordnance, bombs, improvised explosive devices, suspected packages, infernal machines, bomb scares, explosions, bombings, and related incidents. Examples from real life experiences are offered to explain the reasons for the procedures.

Checklists at the end of chapters provide step-by-step procedures so that the specialist can use them as a guide or alter them with the individual circumstances.
