1 Review
CSI meets history and investigative journalism in this series that includes both classic and contemporary unsolved mysteries. Unsolved Mysteries bridges the gaps among social studies, applied sciences, modern folklore, and technology not only by diving into the narrative explanations of the cases but also by exploring how researchers work to solve them and why these cases continue to fascinate readers. This series provides readers with historical information on well-known unsolved mysteries as well as the current standings of investigation and explains how scientists, theorists, and others have examined the evidence of each case, sighting, killing, or disappearance. Readers will be left with a clear understanding of why the subject still stumps investigators as well as why so many people are fascinated by it--and what modern technology can provide to us in possibly answering each of these questions. Unsolved Mysteries is a series in Essential Library, an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
