About the Author

Jan E. Leestma, MD, MBA, is the lead author of this third edition of Forensic Neuropathology. He received a BA degree in chemistry and biology from Hope College in Holland, Michigan, in 1960 and an MD degree from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, in 1964. He has had a private consulting practice in forensic neuropathology since the early 1970s that continues to the present time, and he has given expert testimony in more than 40 states, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Dr. Leestma is the author of more than 100 professional publications, including numerous book chapters in texts. He is a member of the American Association of Neuropathologists and a fellow of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.


Praise for the previous edition:

This new edition of the publication, which has served as a major reference source to the forensic community for over two decades, becomes available to the readers contemporaneously with several other high quality publications from the field, and it is largely assumed that such a treatise is to reflect previously established teaching concepts with inevitable apodictic flavor. Jan Leestma simply proves the opposite through this genuine effort of complete rewriting of the original text and realigns it with decades of personal experience from his busy practice as a consulting neuropathologist. The endeavor is surely re-enforced by the highly acclaimed contributors.
-Ljubisa J. Dragovic, M.D., Chief Medical Examiner, Oakland County, Pontiac, Michigan, in Journal of Forensic Sciences, Vol. 55, No. 1

... the chapters that deal with head trauma and cerebrovascular disease were particularly well written and relevant to my own practice. ... I found the book very useful and would recommend it to pathologists, coroners, as well as to clinicians called to give expert opinions in both civil and criminal courts.

-Paul V. Marks, Consultant Neurosurgeon, The General Infirmary at Leeds, UK

I would imagine that this book is a good neuropathology atlas too. I spent lot of time looking at the illustrative pictures, and gained much simply by looking at them. In my opinion, this book should be very useful to forensic pathologists, forensic neuropathologists, clinicians, medical examiners and law enforcement officers.

-Anil Aggrawal's Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology

... an authoritative and comprehensive text which covers the relevant neuropathology in considerable detail. ... the broad principles will stand anyone who finds themselves acting as an expert witness in good stead. ...There is a consistency in style, which is sometimes lacking from multi-author texts.
-Mark Walker, Wiley Online Library
