This textbook of Forensic Psychiatry is a source book for a wide range of issues concerned with the interaction between law and psychiatry. It has a special emphasis on mentally disordered offenders, but also deals with important related problems such as victims of offenders, accidents, and compensation matters. Although it is primarily rooted in English practice, a concerted effort has been made to cross national boundaries in terms of legal principles and service provision. The book may be used as an examination and instructional text for psychiatrists, the source of reference for all academic enquiries in this field, and as the basis of closer understanding between professions working with mentally disordered offenders and other individuals caught up in the legal process, including lawyers, magistrates, psychologists, social workers, probation officers, nurses and policemen.
